Tuesday, June 21 from 10:30am to 11:30am at the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center, David Francis, Public Art Coordinator for the City of Shoreline will talk about Temporary Art in the Urban Forest - environmentally themed artwork in parks.
As a means of fostering new interpretations of art and nature in urban spaces (particularly urban forests), these temporary artworks would be displayed along trails, glades, meadows, and reclaimed gravel pits, in two adjoining, forested parks (Boeing Creek and Shoreview) to encourage audiences to visit these resources as well as to exercise and spend time in comparative silence. Walking, way-finding, and searching for the "hidden" artwork is a primary component of the project.
The public is welcome to attend this presentation. Senior Center members $2 and non-members $4. Free parking. Funds collected help support the Senior Center.
The Senior Center is located in the southernmost building on the Shoreline Center campus, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98155.
