This morning we all took a trip to see the new sculpture park down by the waterfront in Seattle. With overcast skies, it was a perfect opportunity for all of us to wear our rain gear, but luckily we never got rained on.
The sculpture park is so cool! I'm a big fan of art that can be more interactive. I was a bit annoyed that there were signs up saying not to touch the art, but even more annoyed that people taken it upon themselves to scratch doodles in to the rust of some of the artwork. Ugh! Respect, people! At any rate, I haven't exposed Iris to much "proper" art mostly because I don't see the point in dragging my children to a museum or gallery where I have to shush them and keep them from being, well, children, in order to appreciate art. Being outside in the fresh air and wide open space is a great place for a child to be around art. Eloise rode in the back pack and was happy as a clam. They had a pavillion with two pod thingies that people could climb inside, which were a huge hit with all of the children there. THAT is the kind of art I'm talking about! I was thinking it was such a cool space, perfect for a wedding, perhaps?
Here are some cool photos from our morning:
