A fabulous place for a walk, even for a group of teenagers :)
“Seattle Cloud Cover” -Teresita Fernández
(laminated glass bridge)
“Eagle” -Alexander Calder (painted steel)
“Typewriter Eraser, Scale X” -Claes Oldenburg
(stainless steel and fiberglass)
“Father and Son” -Louise Bourgeois
(stainless steel, aluminum, water)
This was one of my favorites. There is a bell that chimes every hour (might be 1/2 hour, I can’t remember) which changes the sculpture from “father” to “son” and back.
“Eye Benches” -Louise Bourgeois
(black zimbabwe granite)
These were fun and functional sculptures all around the same area. I believe there were 3 different sets, if I recall.
“Schubert Sonata” -Mark di Suvero (steel)
“Love & Loss” -Roy McMakin (mixed media)
I think it’s funny how my group of kids separated themselves into boys & girls un-consciously. That won’t last much longer, I’m sure.
A view of the sound, and a starfish that came in with the tide.
“Stinger” and “Wandering Rocks” -Tony Smith
(steel, painted black)
“split” -Roxy Paine (polished stainless steel)
“Wake” -Richard Serra (weatherproof steel)
These are only some of the exhibits that are part of the sculpture park. I highly recommend taking a walk through this area. You can’t beat a free outdoor art exhibit! And if you get some extra time, take a tour! The tour guides did a great job with my group of kids, and really got them thinking about how they interpreted each piece, and how it made them feel.
