Some of the emblematic identifiers of the state are on display up on lower Queen Anne.

A new public art piece by local artists John Osgood and Zach Bohnenkamp of Seattle Mural Art has popped up at the Queen Anne Marketplace, across from Bartell Drugs on the southeast corner of First Avenue North and Roy Street.
