Art Hike Part 2: Main Meadow

Over the summer I’ve finally managed to see all the other pieces, many more than once, and take a few photos. Aaron and I also had a bit of a photo competition with each other to take some glamour shots of Sky Feeder, so I’ll include our winners from that in this post as well!

The main meadow certainly packed some artistic, and local, punch. Our online tour of the 100% Washington artist crew, starts with Slow Dance, the piece I visited almost as many times as my own, being my neighbor, and one that you see as you drive into the main area of the park. Fred Lisaius’s salvaged silver ladles serve up light and catch the breeze to give this piece its namesake movement. The red tips on the branches are a nice surprise for those who walk up close.

My other neighbor, Tree of Life by Terra Holcomb, is fun to walk underneath. Have you ever walked below a meadow? Now you can!

I think I’ve shared enough about Sky Feeder elsewhere on this site… but I’ll add here the winners from our photo session.

Closer to the water, in the parking island, Ken Turner’s Projections and Reflections on the Moment catches a bit of sky reflection itself and commands its central spot. The Sound Tree has been a favorite perch of birds who add to the sound effects designed by Savina Mason.
