Washington state's design is among those that shine artistically


Recommended Posts

To rise to this artistic challenge, most states turned to children. Prompted by teachers, children proposed symbols they liked, and politicians picked a few. Some states, such as Washington, submitted several designs to the voters. In every state, the governor approved the mint's proposed final product.


To nobody's surprise, most designs attempt to tell their state's story, and because politicians don't want to offend anybody by leaving their part of the story out, these narrative tableaux are stuffed to their gills.


On Wednesday at a ceremony in Seattle, Gov. Christine Gregoire rolls out the Washington state quarter -- No. 1 in our hearts, No. 42 in the series.
