Sharing a beautiful and precise drawing of the historic Green Lake library building by Seattle artist (and my mom!) Valerie Margulis.
Her piece was selected for the Historic Seattle & Georgetown Art Attack show. The Green Lake Library is one of the few remaining Carnegie Libraries that is still serving its original purpose. You can see her piece, and more by other Seattle artists on December 14th in Georgetown.
Nice work, mom!
