My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art.
This week SAM offers a tour of Target Practice: Painting Under Attack 1949–78 with Elisabeth Patterson. Patterson is pursuing a master's degree in art history at the University of Washington with a focus in modern and contemporary art. The tour will cover three themes that contribute to the attack on painting: the effect color has on the eye as an organ, differing viewpoints of reproducibility, and exposing the raw materials of painting.
Free with museum admission. Tours meet at the entrance to the Fourth Floor special exhibition galleries.
