A Matter Of Opinion

Letter: Is art worth it?

The picture of the Olympic Sculpture Park on the Seattle waterfront (Sunday Outdoors and Travel section) blows my mind. What am I looking at? Is it a gigantic waste of money called “art”? Is it an example of West-Side excess that should have been devoted to the Alaska Way replacement? It seems to me to be nothing more than an expression of Seattle affluence. The next time they cry for the rest of us to share in one of their capital projects, I will advocate they have proven they can handle it themselves. — Kay Morse, Spokane

Do you enjoy art, especially of the modern variety? Are visuals a priority in your budget?
