SEATTLE— King County Metro Transit unveiled the Jimi Hendrix-themed bus shelter at 23rd Avenue and Massachusetts Street as part of its ongoing bus shelter mural program.
Hendrix’s sister Janie Hendrix, Experience Hendrix L.L.C. CEO, presided over the ceremony on Wednesday. She commented, “Having his image placed on this shelter is a moving tribute to Jimi and an honor to the Hendrix family. This is yet another way of recognizing Jimi for his contribution to this city, and the mark he made on the world. We are deeply appreciative.”
Jimi Hendrix Park and the new Metro stop shelter are located in the heart of Seattle’s vibrant Central District, a thriving multi-cultural community rich in heritage. Nestled adjacent to the Northwest African American Museum.
