Seattle and Washington, D.C., like many US cities, have outstanding public art displays. In fact, the cities have at least one piece of art in common.
I recently visited Washington, D.C. and took the following photograph at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden.
Typewriter Eraser, Washington, D.C.
Then scrolling through my old travel photos, I found this one from the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park.
Typewriter Eraser, Seattle
They are identical pieces (called Typewriter Eraser) from the same artists: Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.
A third version is currently at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Which city’s public art display (Seattle, DC, or other) would you like to visit?
NOTE: As much as I wish I was compensated by the companies mentioned in this article, I am NOT.
