Visiting the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle, Washington --- #6 of 10
Sunday, July 18, 2010

We ended our day by heading back to Seattle for a visit to the Olympic Sculpture Park. This was a former industrial site, and it became part of a brownfield development project. The park features a salmon habitat with native plantings, public gardens, and there are public artworks throughout the park.

What's on display in the park gets changed regularly. There are 20 monumental pieces that are always on display, including the pieces that I've shown you earlier in this series. Others are added and moved as time goes by, so as to keep things fresh for the regular visitors to the park.

When I posted this picture yesterday, I wasn't sure who the artist was. However, I think that I can provide an identification now. There are three "Hanging Figures" by Jessica Jackson Hutchins on display. She combined her ceramic work with old clothes and found macrame to create them, and the three pieces were put on display in the park earlier this year. I'm not absolutely sure if this is her work, but it's possible that it is.

I like this hanging ceramic, rope, and macrame piece --- it seems to belong in this tree.
