We’ve teamed up with the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) to host a discussion, Water Calling: Artist Panel, 2 to 3 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 14, at Olympic Sculpture Park’s PACCAR Pavilion. Artists Mandy Greer, Stokley Towles and filmmaker Britta Johnson will present the projects they created for this year’s public art series Water Calling.
For Water Calling, three artists and five filmmakers explored water—examining its flow and its history, offering ways to care for our urban watersheds, and celebrating water’s mythical power. The temporary projects took place at various locations throughout the city.
The Water Calling projects were commissioned with Seattle Public Utilities 1% for Art funds and were managed by the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
