Temporary exhibit installed at Olympic Sculpture Park


ERIKA SCHULTZ / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Artist Heather Hart, 38, works at placing siding on her temporary installation "The Western Oracle: We Will Tear the Roof Off the Mother" on a recent afternoon at Olympic Sculpture Park. The piece-- constructed to look like a rooftop dropped into a meadow-- will allow visitors to climb on the shingled roof, play a drum wall and gaze into Puget Sound from a large window. Hart said her artwork focuses on public participation, as well as ideas passed down through generations by oral traditions such as carpentry and sewing. Hart, raised in Seattle and currently living in New York City, learned carpentry from her father. Members of Hart's family are helping her construct her first major installation in Seattle that will be open to public until October.
