ABC Revisiting O

ABC Wednesday, I am revisitng places we have been. We have reached the letter O and here is the Olympic Sculpture Park, an installation of the Seattle Art Museum.





Grandson Benjie is checking out one of the giant eyeballs, which also serve as benches. The Olympic Sculpture Park is near the waterfront, and with the right conditions, has a view beyond the Man and Boy fountains to the Olympic Mountains.



At this angle, this piece reminds me of a Haida whale image. I think I have a similar one on a textile from Alaska.

The Sculpture Garden has some notable neighbors.

The giant typewriter eraser can be seen from Highway 99.
It's a fun place to visit. ... even if you are only almost four.


We visited the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle in May of this year.
You can visit its website.

I love the first photo of your grandson trying to stare down the giant eye. My ABC Wednesday is O is for Oracle.

Fascinating!

Those eyeballs doubling up as seats were a bit off-putting maybe though!

My daughter attended Williams College in Williamstown MA and they have the same 'eye' sculptures! I had to do a double take.
