Safety Cones at the Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle

Oh we have many more adventures of this past weekend at the Olympic Sculpture Park to come soon, but for now, enjoy the pics of the new installation!!! Glaze and pigmented cast fiberglass “Safety Cones” by Dennis Oppenheim! They will be on show at the Olympic Sculpture Park from May through October 2008.

Here is a message from SAM:

“A recent work, it is one in a long line of public installations by this veteran artist that playfully manipulates scale and everyday objects. By hijacking a banal and ubiquitous street safety icon and amplifying it to heroic proportions, it claims the whole park as a site where heightened caution and care should be taken — a sly pitch for a greater awareness of the space that surrounds us.”

*Applause for SAM for putting together a good description and getting a cool installation!! HOORAH!!*
See? Our blog critiques are starting to work. 😀


This cone *JUST* got set up. Damn! Barely missed it.


Where you going, clouds? Rushing by like that…


This is what traffic cones do at nighttime at the Olympic Sculpture Park…
