MIRROR, by Doug Aitken, is a new permanent installation on the façade of the Seattle Art Museum that will change in real time, in response to the movements of life around it. Like a living kaleidoscope, it will be a dynamic representation of the constantly changing environments that make up Seattle and the Northwest.
The event will feature minimalist composer Terry Riley and his monumental work, In C, performed by Seattle Symphony musicians and other members of the creative music community including Stuart Dempster, Amy Denio, and Beth Fleenor.
To celebrate the unveiling of this new Seattle landmark, there will be a street party along First Avenue and Union Street on Sunday, March 24 at 6:30 pm. The event is FREE but tickets are required; reserve your tickets in advance as space is limited.
The entire museum will also be FREE and open to the public all day on Sunday, March 24, from 10 am–9 pm. Pick up your complimentary ticket at the SAM Ticketing Desk.
