New sculpture in Seattle's Rootbound:Heaven and Earth IV

One of the country's only outdoor art exhibits occurring in a public nature preserve, Rootbound:Heaven and Earth IV offers visitors a 2-3 mile sculpture trail through Carkeek's canyons and creeks in northwest Seattle, highlighted this year by performance art and site-specific sculpture in 120-year old Piper's Orchard. Additional media include sound art, kinetic sculptures, and landscape interventions. All works are considered experimental: some are designed to last for the entire four month display period, June 23 - October 31, 2012, while others incorporate decay and erosion. The exhibit's themes offer a variety of perspectives on art and nature.
