Though located a short distance from the Seattle Art Museum, which operates the space, the Olympic Sculpture Park is a completely different experience than the grand institution. The park was built over industrial train yards, reclaiming the waterfront area for art. Trails and bridges zig-zag the space, between a massive red Alexander Calder piece and Louise Bourgeois benches that look like giant eyes. Inside a vivarium, a dead nurse log feeds new, smaller plants, a living exhibit of nature's own recycling.
