‘An Experience’

Why: The Bloedel Reserve is a great big kempt landscape on Bainbridge Island. There’s a long, haunting reflecting pool, a Japanese garden, and a mansion where nobody lives anymore with a pond that a husband once gave a wife for Christmas or her birthday; it’s hard to remember which. These are the more picturesque aftereffects of the Bloedel lumber dynasty. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the garden has invited a Northwest artist for the first time to display new work there. Julie Speidel has strewn 12 sculptures across the gardens and waters like clues to a mystery you have to figure out. (Bloedel Reserve, 7571 NE Dolphin Dr, Bainbridge Island, bloedelreserve.org, 10 am–4 pm, $13, through Oct 13)
