The winner of our July 27 Picture This challenge was Holly Hein of Pullman.
The blue face comes from Jim Dine’s “Technicolor Heart” near the intersection of Stadium Way and Grimes Way on the Washington State University campus. People rarely call it by its real name and it’s better known as the Blue Heart. The 2,800-pound artwork was controversial when it was installed in 2004. In its first year it “was covered with garbage bags, wrapped with a tarp and padlocked, anonymously listed for sale on eBay, railed against in the Daily Evergreen student newspaper and spray painted with a one-word challenge: Art?” according to a 2010 story from the Daily Evergreen.
Hein will receive an Inland 360 sticker for winning the challenge. Look for our next Picture This puzzler next week.
