On-site at Olympic Sculpture Park

I finally got to see the second iteration of On-site at Olympic Sculpture Park yesterday. Curated byMarisa C. Sánchez, this year's installations include new works by Gretchen Bennett, Nicholas Nyland and Carolina Silva.

The Jetty by Gretchen Bennett

This has become one of my favorite things that happens in the park. Nicholas has installed both a path and a pallet of glazed bricks, plus a few rope sculptures. Carolina created a large black cube that she will activate with installations (last night, it was producing fog). And Gretchen installed a hand carved piece of driftwood that she hauled up from Oregon, along with a walking stick and a glass float suspended in a tree. It's like a treasure hunt to find everything. And they're all so amazing.
