Across the street from the infamous Lenin statue in the Fremont neighborhood is Seattle, Washington is another roadside attraction. A 3D Space sculpture representing the cosmos. Since Fremont is known as the Center of the Universe it is only fitting to have an art piece devoted to, well, the universe!
The artwork features a mixed-media sidewalk mural of the galaxies that swirls with a mixture of paint and marble-like dots of glasswork. And then there are tall hooks from which hang planet-like lanterns.
