Seattle Art Museum says
Bring your family for Kids’ Saturdays, where kids explore the Olympic Sculpture Park though drop-in activities. Grab a cardboard box from home and turn it into art! Kids will create a vehicle from boxes and recycled materials for an indoor “drive-in” movie. January 23, February 20, and March 19.

All events are free and open to the public. RSVPs are requested:


SATURDAY FEBRUARY 20: 11 am–2 pm

Have you ever wondered what the giant white head sitting at the sculpture park’s waterfront is thinking? The title of the work, Echo, offers an opportunity to learn more about sound, silence, and storytelling. Artist Jaume Plensa created this work with the intention of asking us to listen to ourselves.

SAM Creates: Echo Phones with artist Sandra Farmer
Be inventive with simple materials and create your own string cup telephones inspired by Echo with artist Sandra Farmer. Make a telephone that reflects your own face and then listen carefully. Take a walk outside and identify noises and sounds throughout the park that you can echo to your partner.

Bring your own cardboard box to create a vehicle from recycled materials for an indoor “drive-in” movie. Our featured film, The Muppet Movie, begins at 12 pm.

Listen and learn more about the sounds of our environment with The National Park Service.

Free. RSVP requested:


SATURDAY MARCH 19: 11 am–2 pm

Did you know that the Olympic Sculpture Park has a greenhouse with living art inside? Mark Dion’s "Neukom Vivarium" is an ecosystem that holds a nurse log, which is the home to countless bugs, plants, and fungi. Every time you enter the Vivarium it will look different because it is in the process of changing all the time. Art doesn’t always just hang on walls or sit on the ground, it can also be alive!

SAM Creates: Momento Vivere with artist Wyly Astley
Create a temporary installation with artist Wyly Astley and dig into the environmental connections between art and science. Take a walk to Mark Dion’s "Neukom Vivarium" and get inspired to make your own plants, bugs, and lichens from felt and craft supplies. Then, add your part to a recycled cardboard nurse log in the PACCAR Pavilion, and give life to these materials through community support.

Bring your own cardboard box to create a vehicle from recycled materials for an indoor “drive-in” movie. Our featured film, "The Lorax," begins at 12 pm.
