If you weren’t sure what to do in our great downtown parks, DSA’s art installation, “PLAY,” spelled it out for you – literally. Each letter of the word PLAY stood five feet tall, and together they formed a 20-foot-long reminder to take a break from the daily bustle and enjoy yourself.
The PLAY art installations, curated by DSA staff, were constructed from Italian bending poplar wrapped around wooden frames by Rainier Industries. Art on the words depicted a playful Puget Sound landscape with wildlife and colorful, faux-3D letters. This installation was on display in Westlake Park and Occidental Square from August 2018 to July 2019.
