Public Invited to Explore “The Orange Tunnels” in Griffintown Park

 

“The Orange Tunnels”

The Parks, Recreation, and Trails Advisory Board invites the public to explore “The Orange Tunnels”, the latest in a series of temporary art exhibits at Griffintown Park. This piece was conceived and installed by Councilmember Rebecca Xczar, and is composed of three tunnels and nearly 70,000 feet of string.

“The Orange Tunnels is an interactive art piece that challenges the viewer’s perspective,” said Xczar. “The tunnels change shape depending on the angle of viewing. This gives the viewer an opportunity to reflect and consider how their own perspective gives shape to what they see.” The public is encouraged to carefully walk through the exhibit.

This installation is the capstone in a series of temporary art exhibits at Griffintown Park. It was funded in part by a grant from the Hotel Motel fund and constructed by volunteers.

For more information, please contact Communications Officer Riley Sweeney at (360) 685-2353. More pictures of the exhibit, and the installation, are available on our facebook page here.
