The Seattle Parks Department might need your help on Saturday. While you’re out checking out the 70+ sales participating in Capitol Hill Garage Sale Day, stop by Volunteer Park and be on the lookout for these guys:
Exhibit showcases giant knitted snails.
Saturday, June 9
Snails on view from 9AM.
Volunteer Park, Capitol Hill At Prospect and 15th.
Cross the cross walk into the park
Look for the snails immediately to your right in the greenery.
Snails and slugs are cursed by the Pacific Northwest Gardener. Individuals go to extreme lengths to exterminate them from our much loved veggie patches and flower beds.
Avid gardeners, artists and knitters, Monika Dalkin and Ann-Marie Petersons have embraced their negative relationship with the common garden snail and have turned gardening angst on its head by creating a whimsical homage to the much loathed garden pest.
All are invited to view the installation. Removal of snails for personal collection is encouraged.
