My kids and I visited Jordan Woods Natural Area in the Cedar Mill neighborhood near Beaverton earlier today to see a new natural resource art installation, Mossuments, a series of three granite sculptures that, in the words of Seattle artist Vaughn Bell, “draw the visitor’s attention to the slow and subtle changes that occur in nature and specifically focus on moss.” It will be interesting to see how moss decides to take and hold and grows on the sculptures over time.
The Intertwine is having a nature photo contest for the months from July through October. August’s theme is the urban-art connection, so I entered a photo I took of Mossuments.
You can find my photo at the link below, which shows the “Look closely” piece of the installation, with Patrick in the background doing just that, looking closely at something in nature.
I would appreciate it if you gave the photo a “like” (at the top left of the photo) – they choose winners based on most likes. Thank you!
