Why not join us as we celebrate the dedication of a new public artwork by Anna MacDonald along the Burke-Gilman Trail. The dedication will be fromĀ 3 to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 14 at Burke-Gilman Playground Park in the Bryant neighborhood.

What: MacDonald’s new artwork, Reclamation, consists of three variations of one form that resides at two sites along the trail. Two bronze copies of the same tree-form, ALREADY and NOT YET, create an arc in space that is completed by the user’s imagination. Located 1/2 mile east, the original tree, REMAIN, feeds and shapes a pair of Red Alder saplings. RECLAMATION commemorates the origin and transformation of the Burke-Gilman Trail, engaging trail users in a conversation about coming and going, and about physical and spiritual regeneration. It represents the city’s commitment to establishing greenways and honors the volunteer efforts of those who care for the corridor’s native species year round.
When: 3 to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 14
Where: Burke-Gilman Playground Park, 5201 Sand Point Way NE, 98105. Artwork site is located near the corner of NE 52nd Pl and 40th Ave NE, next to the Metropolitan Market.
