Open-air art is just his type


DEAN RUTZ / THE SEATTLE TIMES

A man pecks away at a typewriter, one of more than a dozen placed at Gas Works Park in an installation by artist Lauren Ziemski to encourage people to stop, sit and write. Sea Coats says he thought the typewriter the perfect muse for his next letter to a frequent pen pal. Ziemski says she'll continue the pop-up art exhibition every Thursday for as long as the weather holds, going each time to another park. You can find the next destination via the website thecarriagereturn.com.

People are encouraged to try their hand at writing, and submit their finished piece to moderators in exchange for another participant's work mailed to them anonymously via postal service.
