GET OUT! Summer At SAM, With Trenton Doyle Hancock

Every couple years or so (literally), the Seattle Art Museum changes out the installation they have on display at the Olympic Sculpture Park. The next installation round, which runs from August 28, 2010 to March 4, 2012 at the Olympic Sculpture Park’s Paccar Pavilion, will feature the colorful works of Trenton Doyle Hancock. It’s unsure what the installation will look like as of now, but here are some sample of the artist’s work for you to get a feel.
