Richard Serra's "Wake" installed

Over three days, beginning July 22, 2006, "Wake," a sculpture by Richard Serra, was installed in Seattle's Olympic Scultpure Park (OSP). The park, currently under construction, and developed by the Seattle Art Museum (SAM), opens on October 28, 2006. "Wake" is the park's first installed work.

The five sinuous elements of the massive 600-ton work were fabricated in Cor-ten steel.

Members of the SAM board of trustees, staff and patrons get an early look at "Wake" and other OSP developments.
