Posted on July 2, 2022 by WillemSaturday/ at the Park 🌿 I wandered over to Volunteer Park after dinner and took a few pictures. The renovation project at the Seattle Asian Art Museum has been completed, but the museum is open only Friday-Sunday for now. Here is the Museum’s sleek new brick-and-glass exterior, seen from the back. Lots of green (and a ‘green’ car—the black Tesla). I missed the little concert that celebrated the unveiling of the new stage at the Volunteer Park Amphitheater lawn. A technician was just loading the last few pieces of equipment onto a truck. It’s been a long road to get the project completed. Per Seattle Met magazine: ‘Volunteer Park Trust hired architects for the project in 2015 and persisted through a concrete worker strike, exceedingly rainy weather, and pandemic-related supply chain holdups’. An obligatory picture of the greenhouse of the Volunteer Park Conservatory (constructed 1912). A food truck sporting the letter sequence 314 PIE with the characters morphed into shapes that make it into a palindrome. I like it. In addition, the truck has a custom Washington State license plate ‘PIE’. Picknickers enjoying the last of the daylight. The truck in the background is called ‘The Concert Truck’ and belongs to the Seattle Chamber Music Society.
