As a means of fostering new interpretations of art and nature in urban spaces, particularly urban forests like Shoreview and Boeing Creek, the City of Shoreline Public Art Program has initiated the Groundswell Project, a series of temporary eco-art installations from December 2015 – December 2016.

The first two artists in the program are Rodger Squirrell of Lake Forest Park and Theresa Henson of Vashon.

Their works Shoreview Larvae and Self-Circuit are on view in the entry grove at Shoreview Park to the east of the ballpark and play area.

These are temporary placements that are designed to inspire fresh thinking about the natural world while integrating with the natural setting. Squirell’s Larvae will transition in April 2016 into a new phase while Henson’s Circuit is designed to last for a year.

Future installations will occur and the Groundswell Call for Art is online at the City’s art pages (ongoing; no deadline).

The artwork is on view during daylight hours.

Shoreview Park is located at 700 NW Innis Arden Way, Shoreline 98177.
