mossument"Mossuments" in Jordan Park

Public meeting: Wednesday, July 31, 6:30-7:30 pm at the Jordan Woods trail entrance at Jackie Husen Park. 10955 NW Reeves St.

In the fall of 2012, Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District staff worked with a citizens’ committee and the Regional Arts and Culture Council to select and contract with artists to complete design proposals for the Interpretive Sign Network bond project.

“Nature Revealed: Discovering Nature through Art” will create outdoor, interactive, and educational art installations in specific THPRD natural areas and parks to connect patrons to nature in their neighborhoods.

The project goals are to encourage, and allow for, repeat visitation and engagement in natural processes and our natural areas; to increase patron’s observation skills of the natural environment; and to increase patron’s knowledge and understanding of ecology and the interconnectedness of people and natural resources.

Jordan Woods Natural Area in Cedar Mill will be the site of one of these projects. The artist, Vaughn Bell, says, “Mossuments references the idea of recognizing something small, unnoticed, and mundane in the manner of a grand moment in history. Three installations will draw the visitor’s attention to the slow and subtle changes that occur in nature and specifically focus on moss. Orange dots on map show installation locations, which will be within six feet of paved trail.”
