Day #122

May 2, 2014

Here is a shout-out to creativity at its finest (and my understanding of what happened):

The Freemont Neighborhood of Seattle had a problem. It was being overrun by drug dealers and thugs. Under the bridge, it seemed, was the opportune place for this illegal behavior.

What to do? After trying many options, the leaders of the community contacted the Freemont Arts Council and asked for their help. Would they construct - artistically - a troll for under the bridge to ward off the unwanted behavior? Here is the finished product:

Yep, a huge troll now protects the neighborhood. And from what we heard, it’s the only place in America where a real bridge troll exists. Way to go for creating something fun and positive and transforming something scary and negative!
