ARTattack: Teen Night Out
This FREE showstopping night comes equipped with DJs, teen art tours and drop-in art activities led by Seattle’s hottest contemporary artists. The galleries are yours too! Teens pay no admission to see works in the SAM's permanent collection and special exhibition galleries. If you want to plan ARTattack, think about joining TAG, the Teen Arts Group at SAM. ARTattack is for teens and by teens.
