Winter Weekends: Kids' Saturdays In The Park 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.

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