This year’s season is inspired by SAM’s special exhibitions, «Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors» at the Seattle Art Museum and installations by Christopher Paul Jordan and Spencer Finch at the Olympic Sculpture Park.
Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the park with a diverse range of concerts and art activities that explore place-making, cultural confluences, and learning from our local environment. Thursday evenings we’re bringing back the ever-popular Dog Night, Bike Night, and Sculptured Dance, an incredible partnership with the Pacific Northwest Ballet. Saturdays our yoga classes draw such a crowd that we’re once again offering two sessions with 8 Limbs Yoga Centers at 9 am and 10:30 am. Also on Saturdays enjoy weekly Zumba classes, interactive open studio sessions with local artists, and a free-for-all Family Field Day.
