• Dick and Jane's Spot - Ellensburg, Washington

      Photo by Dennis Goza
      Since 1978, Dick and Jane's Spot has been an outdoor installation of quirky homespun art, much of it constructed from found objects such as bottle caps and electrical insulators. It was the inspiration of artists Dick Elliot and Jane Orleman, who started the project in the yard of their Ellensburg home. Although it has been the subject of local controversy at times, it has become an institution and an offbeat tourist attraction. Since Dick's death in 2008, Jane has maintained it on her own.

      If you go:
      The art is, of course, on private property, so there is no trespassing, but it's possible to view and photograph the artwork outside the fence. Accessible any time, free of charge.
