We had a fun time working with kids in an after school club in Kent! Brian Wharton played music from movies including How to Train Your Dragon, and the kids made their own Dragon Eyes with guidance from Interurban Center For The Arts. This project was made possible by the City of Kent Arts Commission.

Kent Parks, Recreation & Community Services recently installed a new batch of artistic wrapping to traffic signal control boxes around the city! Do you have a favorite?

I went to Van Doren's Landing Park today, the crews were not working there today. I took the following pictures. The "Slip Stream" sculpture and it's cement base looks like it was partially dislodged by some heavy equipment such as a bulldozer. I sincerely hope that all care will be taken when moving this sculpture to it's new location in the relocated Van Doren's Landing Park.
