My Favorite Things Tour, 7 pm
My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated, brilliant and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the park to discuss their favorite works of art. This week’s tour is led by Chelsea Werner-Jatzke, the Copywriter and Content Strategist for Seattle Art Museum and the author of the chapbooks, Adventures in Property Management (Sibling Rivalry Press, 2017) and Thunder Lizard (H_NGM_N, 2016). She is outreach coordinator at Conium Review and co-founder of Till, an annual writing retreat. Her writing is crafted around form and function; it moves beyond literary arts margins as the literary unfolds into shapes specific to the art.

Kids Corner, 6–8 pm
Take a break from the sun and come play in the PACCAR Pavilion where families can enjoy the Kids Corner and drop-in art making at the SAM Creates station.

Relax in a beanbag chair, read a new book, do a puzzle, or create your own masterpiece. Kids of all ages are welcome!
