While The Girl and I were making our way to St. Jude last week on our Epic Road Trip Tour, one of the stops we make was at Dick and Jane’s Spot in Ellensburg, Washington.
Back in 1971 Dick & Jane both received a BA in Art from Central Washington University. They then went on to create an eclectic, one of a kind outdoor gallery outside their home.
Most of the art is their own, but 35+ other artists also have their work featured on their property.
Theft has never been a problem because Dick and Jane’s spot is located directly across from the Ellensburg Police and Fire Station.
Even the garden gate was artsy! See all the rusted bottle caps? How cool is that? There are over 10,000 bottle caps and thousands of reflectors on various pieces throughout the property.
Hmm I wonder who placed the reflectors on this cheeky work of art?
Check out Dick and Jane’s garden. Isn’t it lovely? The top of the fence is covered with old glass insulators. How do they even come up with this stuff?
If you are ever in Ellensburg, Washington be sure and stop by. Dick and Jane’s Spot was seriously the most eclectic garden I’ve seen yet.

Mmmm, yes, cheeky is a good word for it!
I’m all for art & freedom of expression, but I’m glad I don’t live nearby!

I have stopped at Dick and Jane’s several times when passing through Ellensburg. It is a fun place to see. Lots to look at.
