"Now the Seattle Asian Art Museum gets in on the craze too . . . Colors of the Oasis: Central Asian Ikats . . . Organized by D.C.’s Textile Museum . . . features 65 textiles primarily from Uzbekistan . . . After centuries of trade along the Silk Road, the technique reached new heights when Central Asian artists began experimenting with dynamic and daring designs that mix visions of floral arabesques, scorpions, tulips, flowing water, even pomegranates."
'Black Sun' by Isamu Noguchi is installed in Seattle, Washington's Volunteer Park. The statue is situated on the eastern edge of the park's man-made reservoir, across from the Seattle Asian Art Museum. The view from the sculpture (looking west) includes the Space Needle, Olympic Mountains, and Elliott Bay.
