SEATTLE — Artist Heather Hart has been tapped to build an installation for SAM’s Olympic Sculpture Park. “The Western Oracle: We Will Tear the Roof Off the Mother,” is slated to open June 22.

“I want my work to act as a catalyst to help a visitor reclaim their belief in their own power,” Hart said in a statement released by the museum. “The ‘Roof’ is an amalgam of distorted traditions and symbols, bequeathed and mashed up to fit a cultural need. An oracle gives guidance and truth. It is in a contemporary human’s nature to want to have an influence on their future, and to want to believe in something outside of themselves.”

Hart, a Seattle native, currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her work has been featured in the Brooklyn Museum, 92YTribeca, the Portland Art Center and other museums and galleries throughout the country.
