Spring arrives this week, and even though we are expecting more rain, there’s one artful party this week that may even feel Al Fresco. Seattle Art Museum hosts its annual SAM ReMix party on Friday, March 24, and it is a perfect time to bust out some spring fashions. Those floral trends will be right at home with the museum’s latest special exhibition, Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection.
The party takes inspiration from both Seeing Nature, and the display of The Migration Series by Jacob Lawrence, reunited in Seattle to mark the centennial of the artist’s birth. Meanwhile, John Grade‘s massive sculpture Middle Fork hovers overhead in the main lobby. The latticed skeleton of a tree brings the outside in quite literally.
Here’s the itinerary from SAM:
At this Remix, dance all night long to mixes by J-Justice, reflect as Northwest Tap Connection responds to The Migration Series, listen in as Love City Love curates a roster of Seattle’s best music and performers, and explore your creative side with activities by local artists Eve Sanford and Satpreet Kahlon.
Experience the galleries in new and innovative ways with My Favorite Things Tours led by artists, performers, creatives, and thinkers including botanist and florist Riz Reyes, poet and educator Imani Sims, communities engagement manager of Forterra Dre Anderson, founder and executive director of One Vibe Africa, Simon Okelo, and more.
The first 50 guests dressed in all green get in for free, so maybe your St. Patrick’s attire will be doing double duty this year. If you want to go a more colorful route, check out fashion writer Lisa Cole’s spring stylings for men and women.
