[Seattle Day 2] Olympic Sculpture Park

Olympic Sculpture Park is an offshoot of the Seattle Art Museum located a few blocks away from Seattle Centre. We walked here from Chihuly Garden and Glass and had a look at the sculptures and the harbour.

What We Did

It was still early after the visit to Chihuly Garden and Glass. Thus, I suggested walking to this park as it is very close by. It is also by the sea, so we had a chance to see what the waterfront looked like in Seattle.

I don’t remember seeing a lot of things, but there are actually 21 artworks inside the park. I only saw a few of the obvious ones like Echo in the above picture. I also saw The Eagle, a huge, red artwork by Alexander Calder in the middle of the park.

Conclusion

It was a nice walk in the sunny weather. It would be a better experience if I grab a copy of the map and guide. I would love to follow the guide and have a look at all 21 sculptures and learn a bit more about them. It is a free exhibition, so I think I will come again if I am visiting nearby attractions.
