Drip, Seep, Run

This unique artwork can be visited on the trails near Bartlett Playground in Schenley Park.

In Drip, Seep, Run, Ginger explores the historical presence and memory of the natural water systems of Schenley Park. This sculptural work is integrated into the woodland trails and highlights water sources that may otherwise go unnoticed.

The piece is sited next to the Hollow Run Trail (approximately at the red star on maps below). It can also be seen from the Lower Panther Hollow Trail, where a stone marker can be seen pointing to it (approximately at the blue star on maps below). Trails may be accessed from several entry points, but the nearest parking is on the street at Bartlett Playground.

Please use caution when walking the trails near this site, as the Hollow Run Trail is a rustic trail and as such has an uneven ground surface and may be muddy. The Lower Panther Hollow Trail is a bit more flat and is an easier walk.

As this piece is being integrated into the greenery of the woodland hillside, final images will be available in spring. Below, a few preview images are available from the work's installation.

The Storyteller

At each Art in Parks location, local storytellers created works to document and expand the narrative of the artists. In Schenley Park, creative nonfiction writer Sakena Washington produced two narrative essays that weave the artists' process with her personal experiences and memories of parks and campgrounds throughout the region. Read her work below, and learn more about Sakena and the work of the other storytellers here!
