This summer, the museum is thrilled to announce the installation of five ephemeral works of art at OSP. West Coast artists Jenny Heishman, Andrew Dadson, Mungo Thomson, Jessica Jackson Hutchins and Whiting Tennis are working on site-specific pieces that will be on view in various areas of the park beginning June 12.
In addition, on August 28 a new installation in the PACCAR pavilion will open to the public. Trenton Doyle Hancock's A Better Promise (2010) is an ambitious, site-specific installation that continues an imaginative and colorful epic saga that the artist has created and follows through his multi-media art works. The installation at OSP will include large-scale sculpture, wall drawings, and an interactive component encouraging viewers to bring their own "mounds of color" in the form of plastic bottle caps to the park and feed them to the work of art, thereby infusing color into OSP's PACCAR Pavilion. Join us on the evening of Friday, August 27 to celebrate the opening of this installation.
