Panels for the bus shelter

Less than two weeks until SummerSet Arts Festival: Celebrating Ronald Bog happens on September 7th from 1-5pm. 

Recycled CDs covered with yarn and fabric

This summer leading up to the free-to-the-public celebration day has included many art parties around town at local events such as Solarfest, YMCA day camp, the Farmer's Market at City Hall, local knitting group meetings, and gatherings at Ronald Bog Park on N 175th St.

Tree project ornaments
Under coordinating artist Kathy Plants' direction, hundreds of Shoreline residents aged 4-88 years old have transformed a mountain of discarded cd's and donated yarn into 450+ wildly colorful fuzzy ornaments to be installed next week on the tree-lined block in front of Ronald Bog Park. This corridor will be further transformed with texture-rich fabric covered wood panels temporarily installed at the Metro Bus shelter and the Shoreline Ponies will have surprise enhancements for the festival as well.

Felted rocks for the rock wall

On festival day, local volunteer resident artists will lead FREE two-dimensional and three-dimensional art-making booths and make music together. Local sculptors will display their large works that include a brightly colored enormous curvy wrapped tree branch, a giant human-sized nest, a colorful felted rock wall, and more.

The day promises to be one that ignites creativity and celebrates community! For more info, contact Cynthia Knox, 206-218-3302.
