Bus Shelter to be Initial Unveiling at Hendrix Park

In advance of the projected opening of Seattle’s Jimi Hendrix Park (for which ground was broken just this past summer), the Friends of Jimi Hendrix Park and the Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation are giving the City of Seattle a related gift: a Jimi Hendrix-themed bus shelter, which will be unveiled on Wednesday, Nov, 19, eight days before what would have been the guitar greats 72nd birthday.
The unveiling of the park’s specially-constructed Metro stop, located at 23rd Avenue and South Massachusetts Street, at Jimi Hendrix Park is set for 11 a.m. (PST). Hendrix’s sister, Experience Hendrix CEO Janie Hendrix, is slated to preside over the ceremony. “Having his image placed on this shelter is a moving tribute to Jimi and an honor to the Hendrix family,” she said. “This is yet another way of recognizing Jimi for his contribution to this city and the mark he made on the world.  We are deeply appreciative.”
Jimi Hendrix Park and the new Metro stop shelter are located in the heart of Seattle’s vibrant Central District, a thriving multi-cultural community rich in heritage. Nestled adjacent to the Northwest African American Museum and grounds of former Colman School, the park will be a primary focal point for community events, gatherings and activities when it officially opens next year. To learn more, visit >>> http://www.jimihendrixparkfoundation.org/
