|Sunday May 15, 2005: Seattle Center & Jimi Hendrix Memorial
|Being that I only had today and part of Monday open
for exploration, I decided to visit the Seattle Center and the
Jimi Hendrix Memorial today. The weather today was showery. Since I
realized I would have to stay outdoors to explore the Seattle Center, I decided to
devote most of the day to it and use early Monday morning to visit Jimi's Memorial if necessary.
|At the Seattle Center I wanted to visit the following places if time and most importantly money allowed;
1) Space Needle
2) Experience Music Project
3) Sculpture Garden
4) International Fountain
5) Pacific Science Center
|The Space Needle is
400 Broad Street.
|After first exploring the Space Needle from outside, I decided I should make the
Experience Music Project my last stop here at the Seattle Center because there was a
break in the weather and I did not want to take pictures in the rain. So next I decided to
venture around the Sculpture Garden.
| The Sculpture Garden, located at Broad and John Street is a free
attraction with four huge unique freestanding sculpted metal pieces
of art. Each metal sculpture was created by different artists;
Ronald Bladen, Alexander Liberman, Doris Chase, and Tony Smith.
