Critter Bounce, 2008

Tina Hoggatt
(American, born 1954)

Location: Lincoln Heights Elementary School, Spokane

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Critter Bounce by artist Tina Hoggatt is made up of seven round, linoleum panels featuring plants and animals of Eastern Washington. Hoggatt was inspired by the school's location near the Turnbull Wildlife Refuge and the Pacific Flyway, an important north-south route for migratory birds. The artwork panels include Redhead Ducks, a Flowering Mint plant with pink flowers, a Pacific Chorus Frog (which is the Washington State Amphibian), a Western Bluebird, a landscape of the Turnbull Wildlife Refuge, a Flowering Camas plant with blue flowers, and raccoons. Hoggatt notes that "the region and its natural habitat, as well as the creatures who have been native to the place for millennia, was a great connection to the 'green' construction and to the young people who study at the school and will go on to take care of this planet."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Spokane School District.
