Here the Columbia Tower dominates the Seattle skyline but the building that truly caught my eye is the art installation on this abandoned building at the edge of Chinatown/International District. Seattle has many public art displays. This one honors Gordon Hirabayashi, one of three Japanese Americans to refused to be “interned” during World War II. His convictions were finally over-turned in the late 1980s. About a year after the U.S. Government issued a formal apology and monetary awards for each survivor of the internment camps.

Upon closer inspection you can see the phrase “Social Justice” is created by layers of origami cranes.
