Celebrate National Parks With Seeing Nature says
Celebrate our national parks and public lands with a night of tours and art-making at SAM during National Park Week.

Park rangers and representatives from our local National Park Service will lead one-of-a-kind tours in the exhibition, "Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection" and will be onsite throughout the evening to answer questions.

6-8 PM
Local artist, Elizabeth Humphrey, leads a drop-in art activity beneath "John Grade: Middlefork" to get you thinking about how to support our public lands. Free and open to the public in the Brotman Forum.

7 PM
Park rangers and staff from the National Park Service will lead brief tours of their favorite paintings in Seeing Nature, sharing perspectives, experiences, and memories from working in our national parks. Tours are free with admission to the exhibition.
