Kristin Giordano of Tacoma photographs a "gorilla" hiding in the bushes by Hood Street in downtown Tacoma. The black-and-white print of it and several other animals is an art installation called "Charismatic Megafauna" and was made by her, Jennifer Adams and Kenji Stoll. It is one of eight temporary public art projects that comprise "Temporal Terminus: Marking the Line" which will be on display this weekend through the end of November along the half-mile landmark trail, which marks the terminus of the 19th-century Transcontinenal Railroad.
