I set a table for Party in The Park at Olympic Sculpture Park last night with this installation of a reflective ceramic boy centerpiece and flowering mountain forms.
Many thanks to Seattle Art Museum for inviting me to participate in this amazing fundraiser alongside ingenious Seattle based artists such as Jeffry Mitchell, Trimpin, Dan Webb, Claire Cowie, Leo Berk, George Rodriguez, among others. It was energizing and exciting to meet so many art enthusiasts, patrons, and supporters of all that we do.
We had a blast with our new friends from the table. The night flew by as Shannon and I talked with our gracious hosts Margaret Breen & Stewart Landefeld, Chris Larson (thank him if you are an M's fan... he is the owner of Seattle Mariners and helped our city keep them here!), Susan & Chuck Armstrong, and Nichole Gibran & Frank Isik-- conversation drifted and morphed around art, law, children, baseball, the Big 10, the Midwest, heath+fitness, as well as our beloved Arts Program at Lakeside School.
An incredible dinner for our table was prepared by chef Brock Johnson from Dahlia Lounge. For appetizers, we ate duck pinch buns with strawberry sambal as well as fresh spring rolls with Thai basil and cucumber. The main course was a delicious Alaskan halibut with garlic and dill, asparagus and a ginger lime carrot salad.
