THE BLACK SUN

I’m an adventurer and art lover. One of my favorite things to do is to pose in front of cool art, like The Black Sun sculpture in Volunteer Park in the Seattle neighborhood of Capitol Hill.


The Black Sun was created in 1969 by Isamu Noguchi and is situated on the eastern edge of Volunteer Park’s man-made water reservoir, across from the Seattle Asian Art Museum. The view from the sculpture includes the Space Needle, Olympic Mountains, and Elliott Bay, so be sure to look for and stop by the sculpture on your way around the park.


Apart from being a really cool and instagrammable sculpture, it might be fun to know that The Black Sun was the inspiration for the Seattle grunge band Soundgarden’s song, “Black Hole Sun.”
