In collaboration with Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Carkeek Park Advisory Council, the Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) has orchestrated an exhibition of temporary artwork in the forest of Carkeek Park for the sixth consecutive year, from July 12, 2014 - October 20.
Opening Reception with artists in attendance is 2-5pm, Saturday, July 12 at the Environmental Learning Center, 1000 Carkeek Park Road, Seattle WA 98177.
Heaven and Earth VI - As Above, So Below hinges on the skill of 16 intrepid artists in placing various eco-artworks in the park that are designed to withstand the intensity of scrutiny by an estimated 100,000 summer visitors to the park.
