Carkeek Park Outdoor Art Exhibit: Heaven and Earth
In collaboration with the Carkeek Park Advisory Council and the Seattle Parks and Recreation, CoCA will present an exhibition of temporary, outdoor sculptural installations in Carkeek Park organized around the theme of “Heaven and Earth,” from June 26 - August 10, 2009.
The sponsors are seeking interpretations of art and nature in a world of change.
Our parks are implicitly havens (“heavens”) where we go to relax, recreate, and, in Carkeek's case especially, walk through the woods. Carkeek is widely considered one of Seattle's premier urban forests...Sunset Magazine recently named it #3 among America's top 10 urban parks.
The artwork should be constructed of primarily natural materials and be designed to have minimal impact on the park -- either decomposing organically, leaving “no trace” -- or, when removed at the end of the display period, leaving the park in essentially the same condition it was prior to installation. Please consider that park visitors include families and children. They are open to two dimensional, three dimensional, and multi-media works. Deadline is April 15, 2009. For more info visit their "Call for Art Page" there's still a few days left to submit a proposal.
