The Long Walk was an amazing success. Comments from participants were along the lines of, “I feel changed by the project” to “The Long Walk was one of the most important things I have done.” (super blush!) Much more then the sum of its parts TLW was part think tank, community building, art camp, trail luv-fest, and truly precipitated our feeling of being at home in the place we live. No wonder the Parks Department’s tag line is “Your big backyard”.
I’m still processing the experience myself and will post a recap on www.thelongwalkseattle.com. I did however have a chance to make this little piece I conceive of while I was walking. It will be included in Show and Tell a mobile gallery cruising the streets of New York City on August 13 & 14, from 12 – 7 pm
