Olympic Sculpture Park
One of the highlights of my trip to Seattle was taking an early morning photo jog from downtown over to—and through—the Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park. Designed by Weiss/Manfredi and completed in January 2007, the park mitigates the 40-vertical-foot difference between the residential neighborhood along Western Avenue and the waterfront below. The zig-zagging design is speckled with sculptures by artists like Alexander Calder and Richard Serra and earlier this year earned our approval as a city park "Done Right."

This exhibition will feature a selection of the American sculptor's work from 1927 through to the mid-1970s. Many pieces will be from Jon and Mary Shirley's collection—many of which are rarely seen—and will include miniature maquettes, works on paper, jewelry, sculptures, and one of the largest mobiles ever created by the artist.
