On Friday, the Seattle Art Museum had their final summer party with their SAM Remix at the Olympic Sculpture Park. The event was packed with activities ranging from live music to interactive art to dancing and drinking. With a classic Seattle sunset and the salty smell of the sound in the air, it got off to a great start.

Seattle Secret Shows sponsored live performances, kicking off the night with the Seattle duo Sisters who have a set at Bumbershoot on Labor Day. Guests lounged on chairs and cushions on the tiered lawn by Paccar Pavilion, looking down toward a stage set up in front of Richard Serra’s sculpture series Wake. Two DJs playing in different sections of the park created their own vibe. OCnotes spun old school throwbacks with modern, funky twists on the horizon of the water with the Space Needle as a casual backdrop. Meanwhile, DJ Josai spun popular hip-hop beats inside the Pavilion.

Local artists proctored interactive activities for guests. Tariqa Waters, who just had art displayed at the Out of Sight exhibit at King Street Station was urging guests to create wearable art using recycled materials. She sat at a table that had perfect view of the water and the sunset. Park tours that were held all throughout the night, including one by the vibrant Lucien Pellegrin, one of  the founders of arts collective LoveCityLove.

As the sun went down, more drinks flowed and guests gravitated towards the dance floor. DJ Josai played music all through the night as celebrators of the arts danced the rest of the night away. Check out photos of the this perfect summer night by Tiffany Bri.
