Seattle attempts to tell us rain is a backdrop to art

Most people don't want to visit Seattle and see their lovely museums because it rains 345 days out of the year and unless you were born in a similar city like Pittsburgh (like me) than you don't find grey skies all that inspirational. In fact, most people get super depressed and turn into hermits.

Publicis Seattle is trying to reframe that grey by suggesting it is a backdrop to all of Seattle's great art for museum month. Fair enough, except for the fact one has to walk underneath that backdrop and more often than not it's spitting down rain at you, and in the winter months, it's the kind of backdrop that gets deep in your bones and chills you. So...good luck with that.
