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 Alexander Calder: A Balancing Act with local sculptor Allan Packer. Packer will take the group on a tour that weaves in and out of time from the past, present and future, using the mobile as a platform for discussion. Packer is a Seattle-based multi-media artist who employs production techniques from theater and industry that address the traditional roles of painting, printmaking and sculpture. He has won several awards including two major Canada Council grants, a 4 Culture Project Grant, several Artist Trust GAP grants and an Artist Trust Fellowship.
Free with museum admission. Tour meets at the entrance of Alexander Calder: A Balancing Act.
