During our spring break to Seattle we were fortunate to view this beautiful site-specific installation by Sandra Cinto. Cinto worked with a team of volunteers to draw thousands of silver paint lines on the wall. Watch this video to see a great collaboration between this visiting artist and local Seattleites.

Encontro das Águas [Encounter of Waters}
Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park April 14, 2012 - April 14, 2013.
Sandra Cinto a São Paulo--based artist created Encontro das Águas as
a site-specific installation for the Olympic Sculpture Park's PACCAR Pavilion in Seattle Washington.
Cinto's Encontro das Águas is a large but intricate wall drawing that conveys a view of an expansive waterscape.
"Cinto works directly on the wall and transforms a single line, repeated at different angles and lengths, into a titanic image of water that expresses both renewal and risk. As a counterpoint to this unbridled seascape, Cinto incorporates stories about individuals who were rescued at sea, to show the endurance of the human spirit in difficult circumstances."
