Get Out!

Now that warm, sunny weather has finally arrived, SAM’s first summer Get Out! event seems particularly well timed. Appropriate to the new Encontro das Águas mural in the PACCAR Pavilion, by Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto, the live music will come courtesy of Show Brazil! and the VamoLá Drum & Dance Ensemble. Local artists including Susan Robb will lead tours of the park, with equal emphasis on the permanent collection and temporary installations. Besides Cinto’s indoor waves, the latter include Sarah Bergmann’s Pollinator Pathway Demonstration Garden—a series of bee-friendly micro-glades located throughout the OSP. (So if you get stung, you know who to blame.) Among the hands-on activities, Elizabeth Humphrey will help you create bicycle reflectors to help keep safe on the ride home. Food and drink vendors will include SAM’s own Taste restaurant, Fusion on the Run, and I Want Curry Now. BRIAN MILLER
