Catch + Release
The Magnolia Public Library opened this weekend, and featured Catch + Release, a new pair of sculptures that inhabit spaces in and out of the newly constructed meeting room addition by SHKS Architects.
Designed to connect interior and exterior spaces by relating to this lovely south-facing window of the library, the works refer both to the madrona tree around which the original library and landscape architecture was conceived and to the function of the library as disseminator and patrons as collectors of information.
The work is made of steel and hand-cast polyurethane resin.
