Nature in Print with Sandra Farmer
Respond to SAM’s exhibition Graphic Masters and take inspiration from the abundant native plantings in the park by using natural materials to create your own monoprint. Unlike most forms of printmaking, a monoprint can only be made once.
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. Tonight’s tour is led by Tiffany Ta, an innately inquisitive designer learning to creatively code. Tiffany’s insatiable quest to learn has brought her to positions ranging from creative director for a magazine to production designer for a movie, and from videographer for an LGBTQ travel guide to a DJ/technician for a radio show. Currently she is following her intuition and diving into the world of creative coding and doing freelance design.
Taste will also be serving wine, beer, cocktails and snacks.
Kids Corner in PACCAR Pavilion: 6-8 pm
Take a break from the sun and come play in the PACCAR Pavilion. Families can enjoy the Kids Corner and drop-in art making at the SAM Creates station. Spend time drawing at the kids-sized easels and capture the sculptures, plant life, and beautiful views of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound. Relax in a beanbag chair, read a new book, do a puzzle, or create your own masterpiece. Kids of all ages are welcome!
