Art students from Seattle Pacific University (SPU) are creating temporary art installations for the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden in Shoreline. Set to open as part of the annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale, this exhibit is a collaboration between the City of Shoreline, the SPU Art Department and the Kruckeberg Garden Foundation.

Dr. Roger Feldman, chair of the SPU Art Department, is working with his advanced sculpture students to create the works of art. After visiting the Garden, the students collaborated in teams to design art installations that reflect the landscape or uses of the site. Students will be available during the opening weekend to answer questions about their work and process.

Temporary public art projects are another means of increasing opportunities for observers and artists and the City sees this pilot project with the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden as an exciting beginning.
