Art Of Our City You may not know his name, but you’ve probably seen Seattle-based artist Buster Simpson’s work. On First Avenue, you’ll find a couple of stone benches made by Simpson more than three decades ago, partly so the Belltown homeless people would have a place to sit. He’s installed some creative downspouts on buildings on Belltown’s Vine Street, part of an unrealized project that would crack open the asphalt that covers the street and turn Vine into a green belt that runs into Elliot Bay. Buster Simpson almost always works in public, and almost always addresses issues that affect our natural and built environment. The Frye Museum has mounted a 40 year retrospective. It’s called “Buster Simpson: Surveyor.”
