In collaboration with the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, Seattle Center will features temporary art installations designed for and installed in the Poetry Garden by emerging artists.

Currently showing: Asia Tail, Beaded Necklaces.

Artist Statement: "In contemporary and historical gathering practices, Indigenous peoples from many tribes, including my own, often leave small gifts behind when harvesting. A buried bead or shell serves as a token of thanks to the land for what has been taken and records the gatherer’s presence on the site. My piece at the Poetry Garden embodies the Indigenous spirit of gifting and reciprocal relationship building. The string of beadwork acts as a necklace draped across the landscape, singing a song for the space and surrounding plantings."
