ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Willows and Morning Ride, Longacres Park is part of a series of photographs by artist David Grant Best called "Portrait of a Racetrack." The series documented the historic Longacres Park racetrack in Renton, Western Washington, which closed in 1992. This image was captured on an early spring morning. Best notes that the image "evokes a romantic atmosphere that could be a setting for a novel or movie."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Thorp School District.
