In 2011, I visited Seattle for a weekend and on my first day my cousin and I visited a free art exhibit, the Olympic Sculpture Park. The park is part of the Seattle Art Museum and it’s a beautiful site because it’s on the water right off Elliot Avenue. And even better? It’s totally free.
It opened in 2007 and it includes both permanent and visiting art installations. These installations are more modern and therefore are more my style if I’m going to look at art. Steel trees and random fountains? Sign me up. It’s very much like what I saw in the Portland Art Museum and what you could see today in MoMA.
See? What is that? I don’t know.
So, if you’re on a budget, this is a neat thing to spend an afternoon looking at. Bring a picnic and book and take in the sunshine (if there is any, this is Seattle after all) and chill out.
