Upcoming Events at Olympic Sculpture Park

Jaume Plensa: Echo

Mon–Sun. Through Oct 31.

Free
Jaume Plensa: Echo: The big white head on the Seattle waterfront is bound to catch your attention sometime, so you may as well have an intentional look for yourself. A tranquil, blind, mute female—she’s named Echo, after the Greek mythic character whose voice is taken away from her—is disturbing, and it's no suprise she seems calm and peaceful. She’s a perfect reflection of a culture shaped by violence against women. She rises from the context of #YesAllWomen, though the 59-year-old male Spanish artist who created her, Jaume Plensa, didn’t mean her that way at all.

Sol Lewitt

Green star Sol Lewitt

Mon–Sun. Through March 8.

Free
Seven Cubes with Color Ink Washes Superimposed: Seven years after his death, Sol LeWitt's wall drawing owned by SAM has been resurrected in a temporary installation inside the pavilion at the sculpture park. LeWitt stipulated that wall drawings could be transferred to new locations as long as the proportions remained the same. But if the proportions were maintained, seven cubes would not fit on the pavilion wall, so the estate decided to stretch the visual translation of the word "cubes" by stretching their shapes vertically—the translation is intriguing.
