I see no art here

Vulcan actually has commissioned a lot of art for its buildings- but you cant find out about it, because the artists must sign non-disclosure contracts, and are not allowed to discuss the locations, budgets, or who purchased these pieces.
Many well known Seattle artists have images of work, that, if you ask them about it, tell you- "I'm not allowed to discuss it".

A lot of it is much better than this- there are some pretty good Vulcan owned pieces by people like Leo Saul Berk.

I don't mind it. It doesn't say much, but it doesn't need to. It's paint on the side of a building, which was put there in hopes shittier paint wouldn't end up on the side of that building.

Kind of like a Diego Rivera if you bled all the revolution out of it.

There is a lot of great art by local artists in the neighborhood and Vulcan is proud to promote theses artworks and the artists that created them. You can download a brochure that shows the location of each piece and describes the pieces in detail here:…

"Not your average neighborhood. Not your average developer." is kind of a dumb line when you realize SLU and Vulcan are more or less the poster children for average neighborhood and developer in Seattle.

No, it's true that they aren't your average developer. They are much worse than average. Most developers don't take over and destroy an entire neighborhood.

safe & generally unremarkable. most people will not be bothered by this. I assume that was the intent?

The Gama-Go style bird to the right is cute... but why is the hammer taking the city away?

Did the artist slip in a Sandinista flag there?

@9 - I find it funny that replacing empty, delapitated low density buildings is considered "destroying" a neighborhood.

I wonder how long before PosterGIANT papers it over.

@13 then you'd find South Lake Union hilarious.

I think the fact that Vulcan can put their money into a piece of public/private art titled "The Keys to the City" is both apt and appalling.

PS - @13 - do us both a favor and please stay the fuck out of Georgetown. Thanks!
