The Walla Walla night-lifers are probably one of the few groups who have been able to experience the true beauty of art downtown. I know we have all had the chance to walk around downtown Walla Walla in the light of day, usually in the summer where it’s nice and warm. But, have you ever really wandered the downtown street at night? I will tell you why you should take a hint from those who are out at night.
 Artist Squire Broel crafted a large and beautiful vase that sits on a pedestal on the corner of Main St. and Second Avenue. This vessel is made of cast bronze in the form of an ancient Chinese relic. The vessel is covered in low-relief Moon flowers, which allows the audience to enjoy the texture of the sculpture, in addition to how it looks. 
That is what we have seen, but the night life has seen the real treat. Some of the flowers on the vase are made of a translucent resin that allows light to pass and shine through the vase. This gives the vase a luminous glow that can only be seen at night or on really foggy days. I have never seen it, but it is supposed to be absolutely magnificent! 
"Lights of the Valley" truly is a fitting name for this piece that was inspired by the Asian culture, as Squire was obsessed with his time in Hong Kong and it’s cultural history. Squire mentioned that his goal was to create pieces that explore visual means to express deep emotions of the soul in the physical world. "Lights of the Valley" is meant to allow the viewers’ feelings to be engaged and consciously felt as well. So, tonight at midnight, if you’re bored and finished with homework, go to Tallmans Drug Store downtown and check out the large luminescent vase in front it.

There are many interesting public art pieces in Walla Walla. This one is the one I like the most. Have you ever noticed these little images in the windows of the facade in the Heritage Park on Main St? Do you wonder what is the meaning behind this?
This art piece is called “Windows in the Past.” The pictures are historic photos of different cultures who lived in the Walla Walla Valley from 1850 to 1950. There are also images of landscapes, and beautiful nature and animals. The pictures are done in porcelain on steel panels.The center windows are pictures of area’s Native Americans. The whole mural represents more than 20 cultural and ethnic groups! There are Chinese, African-Americans, French, Italians, Jewish, Lebanese, Latinos, Japanese, Norwegians, English, Scots, Irish, Swiss, Polish, Germans from Russia, Ukrainians, Germans, and Greeks. The nature images include a panorama of the Blue Mountains and a depiction of Wallula Gap by a Walla Walla photographer Hans Matschukat. The top arches are filled by an image of Bennington Lake on Mill Creek, by Donna Lasater.
This project was completely finished in September, 2010. Some students from Whitman College and Walla Walla University helped with the research as interns under the leadership of The Art Director and production artist Jeanne McMenemy. The steel panels were produced by Winsor Fireform, Tumwater, WA.
What do you think about this piece and why is it so significant?
