Olympic Sculpture Park in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle is one of my favorite places to visit on a sunny day. It's a fun (and FREE) place to experience modern art in an outdoor setting with a sweeping view of local landmarks (i.e., the Space Needle, Mount Rainier). A great place for a stroll with a date, eating al fresco with friends or enjoying some quiet time with your favorite book!
Eagle (the red sculpture on the top left) by Alexander Calder
Wake by Richard Serra, one of the most successful artists of this era. He is famous for using sheet metal.
Washer/dryer (made of plywood) in the weeds by Whiting Tennis. It's one of those art pieces where I think "I could do that myself!" Of course, the reality is I probably couldn't.
Father and Son by Louis Bourgeois.
Split by Roxy Pain.
My favorite piece at this park: Typewriter Eraser, Scale X by Claes Oldenburg.
You can also look at this sculpture from highway.
Sorry for the lack of food posts in the last few days. I'm off to Portland now. Have a nice weekend!
