One of the things I look forward to every year is the Spring and Summer Pearl Art Walk. The galleries are open, the art booths are up, there is music in the air and people fill the streets.
Come join me for an evening walk around The Pearl district.
We will meet Jamison Square by Rico Pasado (meaning “rich past”), a red granite sculpture modeled after a brown bear. The piece was created by Mauricio Saldana in 2006 to honor the bears that inhabited the area long ago. It is also sometimes called the Centennial Bear as well. The park also has a fountain which simulates a tidal pool that is periodically filled by artificial waterfalls and then drained into grating.
We will walk from there to the art booths and galleries.
NOTE: The streetcar runs on both side of the park. So you can park somewhere else and ride the streetcar.
