For One Night Only, Olympic Sculpture Park Transforms Into a Sprawling Light Show

Everything is illuminated for one special night.
Olympic Sculpture Park will be aglow Thursday night.

For the fourth year in a row, the Seattle Art Museum is providing a sparkling incentive not to hibernate even during our city’s most indoorsy season. On Thursday, the museum is setting its Olympic Sculpture Park and crystalline PACCAR Pavilion aglow with temporary light installations and hundreds of luminarias.

Food and (hot) drinks, guided art-making activities and music will also be part of the celebration—a chance to see the park’s artworks from a new perspective. Guests, too, are encouraged to wear lights, so break out the getup you wore at Burning Man, or at least hang a glow stick around your neck.

6 p.m. Dec. 14. Free.
Olympic Sculpture Park, downtown
2901 Western Ave.; 206.654.3100.
