Carkeek Park is celebrating its 80th anniversary this summer. Eleven artists were selected for Heaven & Earth, an exhibition of temporary, outdoor sculptural installations. June 27th marked the opening date, and the weather was extremely cooperative. Two of the installations were located in Piper’s Orchard.
Visit the park this summer, picking up a Heaven & Earth map at one of the entrances. It describes where each installation is located, as well as identifying the artist and their description of the sculpture.
We were fortunate to meet Kristin Tollefson, who was putting the finishing touches on her exhibit (3).
Barbara De Pirro installed ‘fungo plastica’ (2) at the north end of the orchard.
Friends of Piper’s Orchard staffed a table to provide orchard history to visitors. We also checked the developing apples and did a little thinning.
