Save the DATE!…and that date is Saturday, April 11, 2015. 10:00 a.m. Artist Kristin Kuhns and the Salem Public Library will be unveiling Kristin’s two pieces for the entrances (one on each floor) to the children’s room at the library. Library staff was intent that when Children enter the library they know EXACTLY where to go…and there will be no mistake. Kristin has been working on the project for a year and the work has included felling trees, building a wide variety of fauna (all native to Oregon), constructing trees for habitat for the birds and animals she has made, hand painting and finishing all the “critters” while also making a program for installation. Bases needed to be made, giant drill bits and the logistics of attaching the pieces to the Library’s concrete walls, all a bit overwhelming to me… but well within Kristin’s range, impressive and beautiful. Take a look at the progress as the year has passed…
You won’t want to miss it…!!
killer, bonnie! you got the scoop. yay kristin.
I can’t find the words to say how wonderful this is. Kristin is a true artist.
Wow! What an artist. The animals are adorable!
This is going to be even better than a whole year of imagining and a whole lifetime of wishing could conjure.
BJ’s comment says it all…
Tour de force, what a gift to Art and Salem! Thank you Kristen!
