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).

That looks like so much fun. I need to get over there before I leave!

Yes! You should go see it! The mountains and the Sound make a beautiful backdrop.
