So, I co-curated a literary art installation with my boss at my internship. It opens tomorrow during First Thursday in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. The plaques came in today and I’m really excited.
The installation features work from about a dozen Pacific Northwest writers on sculptural pedestals built by Pacific Northwest carpenters/sculptors fitted around existing features in the park.
The show will feature original work from Stacey Levine, Greg Bemm, Kevin Sampsell, Richard Chiem, Tara Atkinson, Willie Fitzergald, and other really awesome, generous people who did this on a super tight deadline. Cannot thank them enough.
"Read with Me," one of three summer programs we are doing with ARTSparks and Seattle Parks & Recreation opens tomorrow during First Thursday Art Walk! Come see us at Occidental Park around 6 p.m. Some of the writers who contributed to this installation will be there as well!
We’re working on a kite-inspired installation in a Seattle park. We were looking at what other artists have done with kites and found some great work by Heather and Ivan Morison. Read more about it here and here.
We had a kick-off party Friday to celebrate the start of construction on the Spiral Project, an upcoming installation at Lake Union Park. We’ll be constructing the sculpture from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feel free to stop by to build it with us, or even just to chat.
The above image was a collaborative sketch of the Spiral (and some other random things like a dog named Mika and some disembodied eyes) drawn by the 30+ party attendees who have almost all been involved in the project in some way.
