Here are some pictures of the Salmon Tour around Seattle
and the auction itself.
The Soul Salmon Float spent a week in the greater Seattle
area before the

of hammering Man. SAM officials invited the "Art Action"
there and they also painted at Westlake Center.
One of the events the Celestial Salmon Float attended before
the auction was the Release Fair at UW Hatchery. 600 school
children release salmon fry under the auspices of the Seattle
Public Utilities. Here, one of the children is inevitably
