Not everyone is an art connoisseur. While I enjoy art and did visit the Picasso Museum and The Louvre when my wife and I went on vacation to Paris back in 2000 it's not something I typically do. Not because I don't enjoy it, it's just that I have other things on my agenda. They usually involve sports, food, gambling or rides. Lol.

That said I love walking around Downtown Yakima and seeing the sculptures local artists have created for everyone to enjoy. It adds to the atmosphere, gives people something to talk about (what was the artist thinking?) and generally makes things more pleasant. Cities with a lot of outdoor have a heightened feeling of multiculturalism and general well-being.

If you haven't seen any of the sculptures in the photos on this post I encourage you to go see them up close.
