Planets at the Center of the Universe

The large plaza in front of the Space Building is an intergalactic public art installation by Jessica Randall and the Fremont Arts Council.
JP Patches Statue
A life-sized bronze portrayal of J.P. Patches and his girlfriend Gertrude located at 837 North 34th Street. The official name of the statue is Late for the Interurban. It was unveiled in 2008 and was made possible from donations by “Patches Pals” and neighbors. The J.P. Patches Show was one of the longer-running locally produced children’s television programs in the United States, having appeared on KIRO-TV in Seattle from 1958 to 1981. The show was live, unrehearsed improv with rarely more than two live actors on screen.
