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 painter, curator and writer Joey Veltkamp.
Since 2007, Veltkamp's blog Best Of has been essential reading for the Seattle visual art community. His paintings and drawings have been seen in numerous exhibitions around Seattle. Veltkampís next project will be transforming a group of beloved cupcake stores into a showcase for emerging and established community-minded artists.
Free with museum admission. Tours meet at the entrance to the Fourth Floor special exhibition galleries.
