Every month we publish a photo of something (or somewhere!) in the Highlands. Some months are easier than others, but all photos will be of something accessible to the public. It is up to you to guess where the photo was taken!

Last month’s photo was of the metal flowers sculpture near the fire station on Park Drive. “Miracle Grow” was created by artist Leon White, and was inspired by his own garden. White is a regional, national, and international award-winning artist in painting and sculpture. He works in painting, stone, ceramic, bronze, mix medium and large public sculptures.

White’s work “Miracle Grow” was part of a loaned art program in Issaquah in 2005, which borrowed public art from local and regional artists and displayed the pieces in various locations for one year. Residents’ positive reaction to this installation prompted the City to buy it for $20,013. (ref: Seattle Times, February 13, 2006)
