Seattle's Olympic Sculpture Park

A Place for Art, Environment, and an Open Mind

The Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park, where Alexander Calder's The Eagle soars over Puget Sound, Roxy Paine's stainless-steel Split glistens in the rain, and Richard Serra's Wake beckons visitors to walk within its towering forms, stands out as an exemplary civic project: an urban park open and free to all and a dynamic green space filled with great art. The innovative design turned a former industrial site on Elliott Bay into a remarkable place that not only celebrates the inseparable nature of art, urban infrastructure, and landscape but also captures the majestic character of the Pacific Northwest. Using the park as a model of how public-private partnerships can create innovative civic spaces, this informative and visually stunning book will bring the Olympic Sculpture Park to a broader audience beyond the greater Seattle area and will be a vital resource for museum professionals, architects, urban planners, students, and general art lovers.
