Photographer, friend and ambassador of the Solitary Arts, Andrew Paynter, along with Geoff McFetridge and myself flew-into Seattle over this past weekend to de-stall Geoff's 3-year installation at the Seattle Art Museums Olympic Sculture Park.  It took Geoff months of preparation and 10 days with a full staff to prepare for the initial opening on March 29, 2008.
