The park consists of former industrial land near the waterfront that has been reclaimed and planted to encourage wildlife. A Z-shaped pathway leads up a hill from Elliott Bay to the park's pavilion at the top of the hill, with sculptures all along the way. Near the bottom is "Schubert Sonata" by Mark de Suvero.
"Seattle Cloud Cover" by Teresita Fernandez is screened glass that overlays the view of the city in an ethereal ribbon of undulating color.
On the left is one of three large "Safety Cones" by Dennis Oppenheim.
Ray and Sofia paused for a quick photo under Alexander Calder's "Eagle".
One of my favorite pieces is Claes Oldenberg's "Eraser", which looks like a huge version of an old-fashioned typewriter eraser that has escaped one of the nearby office buildings and is racing, hellbent, toward the freeway.
It was nice to get inside the pavilion and out of the cold wind. Inside was a temporary exhibit, created especially for the pavilion by Geoff McFetridge called "in the Mind". Sofia was quite taken with it.
I'm looking forward to going back on a warmer day!
Oh I love that eraser too!ReplyDelete
