Earth Day (one of 365, annually)

My friends at Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park have invited me to celebrate Earth Day with them. (They must know I'm pro-Earth.) For Seattle Art Museum's Family Festival: Earth Day for Kids, I'll be spending the day inside Mark Dion's Neukom Vivarium, home to sixty feet of life, decomposition, dirt and renewal. Dion's work is an 80 foot greenhouse containing a huge nurse log, the ground-floor of the teeming Pacific Northwest ecosystem. I'll be there with clip boards and drawing tools, working as resident artist inside the vivarium: encouraging visitors to use drawing as a way to see things closer and clearer. I'm also planning to have some very serious discussions about ferns with children. (Most kids are pretty comfortable as both "artist" and "field biologist.") The sculpture park is also hosting lots of other interesting activities, events, and ideas throughout the day. This is free and open to the public; Come say hi!
