SAM Olympic Sculpture Park

Like a two car garage, both Seattle papers today report on the initial public art works slated to be installed in Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park, scheduled to open in 2006. As a bonus,the Seattle Times publishes images. While the usual suspects such as Di Suvero and Serra are on the roster, there are some interesting projects included, for instance Mark Dion’s greenhouse piece titled “Seattle Vivarium”. Dion has made previous Vivariums, such as this one shown at Tanya Bonakdar last year.

Last winter Artdish wrote a well done and extensive piece on the park’s background and outlay, which can be located here.

The longer I live here and see condos creeping into the periphery of everywhere I look, I am glad someone decided to preserve this 8.5 acre waterfront piece of land from being trampled by developers.
