Olympic Sculpture Park
Just back from Seattle where we went to the Olympic Sculpture Park of the Seattle Art Museum. Less than a decade old, the park is built on an old industrial site and now offers a unique, beautiful setting for outdoor sculpture, and a great place to walk and take pictures.
Most notable pieces include:
Eagle (1971) by Alexander Calder (perhaps best known for his mobiles)
and Typewriter Eraser, Scale X by Claes Oldenberg (pop artist known for his giant sculptures of everyday objects).
