Still some “Words” left on Tollefson

If you didn’t get to play with James Grayson Sinding’s art installation “Words” when it first arrived in Tollefson Plaza, there are still some left. Sinding hand-cut hundreds of giant fridge-magnet-style words on the plaza on Aug. 6 as part of the Spaceworks downtown art project; as with his earlier installation “Letters,” anyone can go up and play with the words to make poetry (or not) along the plaza steps. Do it before they disappear. 24/7. Free. Tollefson Plaza, 1700 Pacific Ave., Tacoma. spaceworkstacoma.wordpress.com
