Shoreline Tempestry Project showcases local fiber artists presenting global warming data at City Hall

Friday, April 15, 2022

The Shoreline Tempestry Project is a collaborative effort of 11 local fiber artists to represent global warming data in visual form. Tempestry combines the words “temperature” and “tapestry” to describe knitted and crocheted pieces representing climate change.

Tempestries are created in specific colors that represent high temperatures each day for a year. Multiple works are displayed together to show change over time. 

The Shoreline Tempestry Project spans the years 1950 to 2021. Patterns were created from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data for Seattle-Tacoma Airport data.

20 Tempestries will hang in the lobby of Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Avenue N, from April 20 through July 15, 2022. 

Please join us for an informal opening on Thursday, April 21 from 6:30 – 7:30pm. Meet the artists and see how climate change is interpreted in yarn.

This exhibit brings attention to Shoreline’s Climate Action Plan as it is being updated. The City of Shoreline is grateful to the following participants who donated their time, talent, and Tempestries to the City’s Public Art Collection:
