For those interested in an artistic outdoor experience, Seattle, Washington, is home to the Olympic Sculpture Park. Operated by the Seattle Art Museum, the park opened in 2007 and features nine acres for visitors to explore, with sculptures by artists like Mark Dion, Roxy Paine and Mark di Suvero.

The Olympic Sculpture Park features both rotating and permanent exhibits. In the permanent collection you’ll find more than 15 works, ranging from abstract sculptures of painted steel to mundane fiberglass objects made interesting. For example, Mark Dion uses living plants for his creative yet scientific “Neukom Vivarium.” Featuring a 60-foot “nurse log” housed in a climate-controlled greenhouse, visitors can view the decay of the wood as well as the life forms within it through a magnifying glass.
