Reception Sunday at Paramount Open Space

The latest addition to Groundswell, the Eco-Art Program organized by Shoreline Public Art, is a forty-foot long twisting coil of invasive ivy vines installed in the trees for approximately the next four months.

Sarah Kavage’s Out of One, Many; Out of Many, One (E Pluribus Unum) was “created out of invasive ivy collected from the site over the summer and fall by a small group of volunteers, preserving a small patch of habitat on the site, particularly the grove of trees from which the piece is hanging.

"It was inspired by the story of Paramount Park Open Space, which has been preserved and restored through decades of stewardship and effort by the surrounding neighbors and volunteers.”

Since November 2015, the City of Shoreline Public Art Program has initiated the Groundswell Project, a program in temporary environmental art situated in urban forests.

In celebration of the first year of the project, the public is invited to attend a reception for Sarah Kavage and her work Out of One, Many; Out of Many, One (E Pluribus Unum) on Sunday, December 11, 2016, from 1:00-3:00pm, with remarks from the artist and refreshments provided by Shoreline Public Art.

Location: Paramount Open Space Park, Shoreline. Use the park entrance at 11th Ave NE and NE 152nd St. (Parking is limited; recommended along 152nd) Follow the trail for a short distance into the park and the sculpture will be on the right. It will be on display until spring 2017.
