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 that explores the power of color in Alexander Calder: A Balancing Act and SAM Next: Heide Hinrichs with local artist Jenny Heishman. Heishman received the PONCHO Special Recognition Award this year, and her piece Water Mover, commissioned by the City of Seattle, was selected for the national Top 40 Public Art Projects. Heishman plays with color and faux surfaces in her sculptural work to bring into question our perceptions of real and fake.
Free with museum admission. Tour meets at the entrance to Alexander Calder: A Balancing Act on the Fourth Floor.
