“Holy porch swing! At Jefferson Park you and yours
can have fun looking behind my doors
and peeking into my windows to see what I adore.”
– from the Blue House website

If you see a Victorian house moving around the streets of Beacon Hill near Jefferson Park this weekend, don’t be alarmed. It’s the Blue House, a “a spirited citywide folly celebrating home and stewardship” — actually, a mobile artwork about energy conservation and sustainability with accompanying singing bears and gnomes, coming to the neighborhood on Sunday for the work’s “housewarming party.”

Lucia Neare’s Theatrical Wonders’ “There’s No Place Like Home” show is 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Sunday, October 21 at Jefferson Park. The performance is free. The 13’9″ tall Blue House artwork was created to celebrate home stewardship through energy conservation, to recognize Seattle City Light and Community Power Works, and to bring awareness to the city’s energy conservation programs. The project was funded through City Light’s 1% for Art. The house, which gets around town on an alternative energy truck, will be visiting other neighborhoods including Seattle Center and Green Lake before the end of the year.
