New artwork reflects work of Native Plant Stewards in Brugger's Bog

Saturday, September 15, 2018

Brugger’s Bog Park is currently undergoing ecological restoration by Master Native Plant Stewards from the Washington Native Plant Society and the City of Shoreline.

In an effort to reflect that commitment, the city’s Public Art Program has featured Brugger’s Bog as a site for temporary artwork.

The 2018 program brings artist Will Schlough to the program, a sculptor and mural painter with an interest in site specific work. Schlough’s public work creatively interacts with the surrounding environment, presenting unique and thought-provoking narratives.

‘Restoration’ (as the artwork is titled) depicts a five-foot tall human hand with a newly potted plant evolving from an old stump.

The piece speaks to restoration efforts and the role of humans in the development of ‘natural’ spaces, cleverly asking viewers to consider where ‘natural’ ends and ‘manmade’ begins.

It will be on view for the Fall, Winter, and Spring.

Brugger's Bog is on 25th NE, just north of Ballinger Way and across from the Aldercrest fields.
