That street name has always perplexed me. It's very... divisive.

It really is a wonderful design. Thanks for using my picture. It's not the highest quality, but I was so happy to have found a poster of my own.

It is featured on my blog here:

I don't get that poster or any of them really. And not for lack of a subscription.

Now the city is considering renaming Broadway Plaza with an obscure name.

Sure would be nice if they kept it Broadway Plaza as it is a continuation of Broadway. So much for "wayfinding."

I've been lobbying to have Broadway Plaza renamed as Sepulveda Boulevard.

Ooo, thanks for the post RR. I'm going to have to see if I can't snag one out in the wild.

One of the posters found me on Monday. Seriously. It was kinda creepy ... I felt stalked. I think it was just finding a dry place to be ...

That is creepy tc. Before the Renaissance, I used to enjoy seeing the posters all over downtown. Now, with only a handful of vacant blighted buildings remaining, I hardly see them anywhere.

Morgan: Try Sixth Ave, the Stadium District, MLK, etc.

Nice green shag carpet, goes well with the poster. Weird, huh

It's a tricky assignment for two middle-aged white guys to take on a subject like "Tacoma's Civil Rights Struggle."

All of the Beautiful Angle statements seem to be focus on perpetual angst. Not a bad genre.

"Empire Way" is available. (just kidding)
Interesting point - I never thought of that.

I like this one. Makes me wanna see that WSHM exhibit.
