It's been 3 weeks since the groundbraking groundbreaking, and some dirt finally got pushed around so we could all party.

After a day of rain, the upper lot was a rut-filled, muddy mess. But Sellen and the party planners worked their magic, preparing the property for SAM's free Party in the Park. By 4:30 in the afternoon even the bulldozer was decorated.

Target's generous sponsorship was visible everywhere - their red and white brand was on SmartCars and pinwheels, seat pads and ponchos. Thanks Target!

Kids of all ages became mini-sculptors at the Noguchi drop-in art activity, actively celebrating both the sculpture park and the Sculptural Design currently at SAM.

Seattle-based architect/artist Iole Alessandrini proves how readily a mobile, living sculpture, created by Ben Berres, Zac Culler, and John Sutton, transforms a trailor into a park bench.

Urban ArtWorks created a mural, and Seattle favorite Reggie Watts improvised on a dream - what if we had a park, with sculpture in it!
