Waiting for the Interurban Art Work

Seattle tourist attractions--exploring the Fremont neighborhood

North 34th Street at Fremont Avenue

 Waiting for the Interurban

 

One beloved Fremont piece of public art is this sculpture depicting five adults, a baby, and a dog waiting underneath a pergola to catch the electric streetcar back in the early 20th century.  All of us can sympathize with the plight of commuters waiting to go somewhere.  Local artist Richard Beyer was commissioned to build this sculpture in 1978.  Beyer also sculpted the statue of Sasquatch in Pike Place Market. 

The Interurban figures are the subject of frequent wardrobe changes as people constantly add articles of clothing and balloons to enhance the figures.
