Local Artist Adds Whimsy To The Neighborhood With New Park


12th Ave 2  You may have noticed a new addition to the corner of 12th Avenue and East James Court in the last few months.

What was once a vacant lot, filled with patchy grass and not much else, has been transformed into a beautiful work of art, thanks to Local artist Ellen Sollod.

Sollod is noted for her imaginative and whimsical artistic contributions all over the city, including a sculpture entitled “Origami Tessellation” prominently located on Mercer Street, and “Lost in Thought”, consisting of three seven-foot diameter mosaic insets placed in the sidewalk at Valley Street and Westlake Avenue, and at Valley Street and Fairview Avenue in South Lake Union.

Her latest contribution to the city’s aesthetic is this thought provoking 7,332-square-foot hardscape park, right here in Capitol Hill. The park, which the artist calls more of a “plaza” than a park in many ways, took about eight months to construct and is a bit more personal to the artist, as it’s located close to her home. “I’ve never lived quite as close to something I’ve done, I feel like I’m more of a guardian than I ever have before.”, she is quoted as saying.

12th ave 3Though it’s been open to the public for months now, a grand opening is set for Thursday, April 14, to coincide with the Capitol Hill Art Walk, and will feature live music by the Garfield High School jazz band trio and folk singer Noami Wachira. In addition to live entertainment, the grand opening will also include food and beverages provided by local favorites Starbucks, Ba Bar and Cherry Street Coffee, and will surely prove to be a lovely community gathering and celebration.
