The Art of …

… sculpture, by David Govedare

About a month ago, The Art of… posted The Mustangs of Las Colinas, and a commenter by the name of Nifty sent me to look at this installation. I think it’s fabulous and wanted to make sure that as many people as possible get to see it. It is one of the most viewed art installations in Washington State, with an estimated 100 million cars passing by between 1990 and 2008. According to Wikipedia,

Although it can be seen for miles in all directions, the sculpture itself can be accessed via a rough footpath which leads from the east-bound side of the I-90 freeway near Vantage to the top of the ridge. According to the guide book Washington Curiosities, the best viewing point from a distance is Wanapum Vista on I-90 three miles east of Vantage.
