Now more than ever you have an excuse to do something touristy like visiting the Seattle Space Needle. Your reason being, so you can catch a view of Marlin Peterson’s newest spider mural located on roof in close proximity. The mural was commissioned by the Washington State Parks commission and painted on the roof the Seattle State Armory. Peterson chose to paint the roof after unsuccessfully trying to find a wall that would be size appropriate for his eight-legged arachnids. The artist’s shadow is what really gives the piece depth and brings the spiders to life.
