Dick and Jane’s Spot is a unique and eclectic yard art “exhibition” available for viewing 24/7 in the town of Ellensburg. It all began around 1980 when artists Dick and Jane (who also had a dog Spot at the time) started creating pieces to jazz up the outside of their home, which was boarded up and dilapidated when they purchased it a couple years earlier. The experience became infectious and consuming. In addition, Dick became well known for his reflector art, and both home and distant art installations reinforced themes and approaches.
The home is located on a corner lot and can be viewed around its full perimeter on all sides. There are over 10,000 bottle caps, thousands of reflectors, and many random sculptures throughout. In addition, 40 other artists have contributed pieces to the outdoor gallery.
It is worth a side trip. If you are passing along I-90, go to the corner of 1st and Pearl in Ellensburg before grabbing a bite to eat and heading along further.
