“Evergreen Commons”

The Evergreen Museum and Library’s biennial outdoor sculpture exhibition consistently offers some playful fun, but the piece from Eric Leshinsky, C. Ryan Patterson, and Fred Scharmen (with the help of Michael Benevento, Gary Kachadourian, Sarah Doherty, Billy Mode, Jonathan Taube, and Services United) really delivered this year. For the cheekily titled “Evergreen Commons,” the artists created a mini urban “park”—a concrete slab with a bench surrounded by a chain-link fence, with graffiti on a brick wall, a netless basketball hoop, and an omniscient blue-light security camera—on the lovely grounds of the former home of a 19th-century railroad magnate. The reasons for class war are rarely so irreverently articulated.
