Volunteer Park
1247 15th Ave E
Seattle, WA


Located on the east side of the Volunteer Park reservoir stands "Black Sun" a sculpture made by prominent Japanese American artist Isamu Noguchi in 1968. The sculpture carved from black Brazilian granite stands 9 feet tall and features an opening in the middle that frames the Space Needle, Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountain Range.
This sculpture is reminiscent of the lyrics written by Seattle's Chris Cornell in 1994's "Black Hole Sun" off of Soundgarden - Superunknown Album.
