Jackson Park’s New Bounty

Recently in Jackson Park, people have been reporting that they have seen something new to the landscape – a new type of plant, perhaps? Some are as tall as trees, some lay on the ground, but all have beautiful, intricate leaves, which appear to be hand cut by an artist.

Oh wait, did we mention that they’re made of metal and were created by artist Celeste Cooning? Bounty serves both as a threshold for the Jackson Park Golf Course perimeter trail, as well as creates a sense of place at the prominent entry point to the trail. The artwork has been up for about a month now, and Celeste just got an amazing write up in Seattle Times – we highly recommend going to see Bounty on these dry fall days we’re having! The pictures from the installation are below.

The artwork was commissioned with Seattle Parks and Recreation 1% for Art funds.
