An outdoor literary salon, in downtown Seattle

There’s reading in the park, and then there’s a park turned into a reading: “Read With Me,” in Pioneer Square’s Occidental Park, has invited artists to turn everyday things into literary displays. From a news release: “Park-goers enter the park and see trees, barriers, lampposts and other existing objects in the park featured and highlighted … When viewers approach the ‘sculptures,’ they will find plaques displaying short fiction and poetry.” The installation opened at the June 7 Art Walk and will be in place all summer.

Contributing writers: Tara Atkinson, Greg Bem, Jamey Braden, Richard Chiem, Darren Davis, Wilie Fitzgerald, Len Kuntz, Stacey Levine, Justin Noga, Bernadette Pajer, Kevin Sampsell, M. Thompson and Jane Wong. Co-curators: Frances Dinger and Bryan Ohno.
