Surrounded by Pamela’s whimsical installation Beneath the Forest, Beneath the Sea, come create a pink net and rope collage, a wearable accessory, a rope bracelet, a colorful drawing, and even try your hand at musical paper making: Roots to Paper. Seeds to Trees. Come hug the sculptures and make art! All ages welcome!

About Pamela Moulton
Pamela Moulton’s installations are large-scale, playful, hands-on, exploratory and mysterious…Moulton is a multi-disciplinary artist, whose newest human-scale immersive environments are built entirely from salvaged commercial nets and ropes. Her interactive spaces may be crawled through, climbed upon and occupied, allowing the public to explore its environmental consciousness in a direct, material way. These lost materials – haunt our oceans. They are durable, outdoor materials designed for human handling, connected historically and commercially to Portland’s development. Moulton uses them to pull her visitors into spaces which are evocative, sensory, and contemplative. World-building and collaboration are the bases of Moulton’s practice.
