The city bus trip was long & packed but we made it to the park:

Split by Roxy Paine (a stainless steel tree):

Wake by Richard Serra (a great place to play hide and seek especially from your teacher):

Eagle by Alexander Calder:

Typewriter Eraser, Scale X by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen:

Seattle Cloud Cover by Teresita Fernandez (this was such an amazing piece which over looked the passing trains as well as the harbor where we saw a fire boat):

The Neukom Vivarium by Mark Dion (a sixty foot nurse log):

The park is such a great use of space, over trains, over cars, spun around and down to the water front:

And one of my favorite artists, Louise Bourgeois, Eye Benches I, II, III:

When we were walking back to the bus Oscar said; “Michelle, was our entire school day science?” (So cute!)

Then talked about all the other elements to our day: art and social studies and math (we did have to pay to get on the bus) and reading (signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs) and geography and health (this is a very hilly city!)

There were many other amazing sculptures (21 actually) that I didn’t get pictures of (the camera batteries were dying) – but everyone should go and check out the park (it’s free and just fabulous.)
