The Fountain at Seattle Center

Kerstin Frank art texture


Usually the International Fountain at the Seattle Center is thronged with people playing in the spray as in the first image from the 2011 FolkLife Festival below When I visited on this cold January day there were only a couple visitors and the fountain was silent.


This fountain was orginally built in 1961 as part of the Worlds Fair, see second image below It was rebuilt in 1995. The fountain has a water capacity of 9,000 gallons, 137 nozzles, 56 microshooters and 4 supershooters plus several 12 minute music shows.
