TAM REMINDER: 2007 DOCENT DAY OUT on Saturday, June 2

REMINDER: Please let me know by May 15 whether or not you would like to come along on our Docent Outing to Seattle Art Museum and Olympic Sculpture Park!

From Heide.



I am planning a day trip to Seattle Art Museum and Olympic Sculpture Park for all Tacoma Art Museum Docents on Saturday, June 2, 2007.


The day will involve:

  • 9:30 am: car pool from Tacoma Art Museum to Seattle Art Museum
  • 10:30 am: one-hour, docent-led tour of the newly re-opened Seattle Art Museum
  • 11:30 am - 12:30 pm: free time in Seattle Art Museum
  • 12:30 pm: lunch at the new SAM TASTE Restaurant
    I have scheduled two hours to eat lunch and make our way to the Olympic Sculpture Park.
  • 2:30 pm: docent-led tour of the Olympic Sculpture Park 
  • Sometime after approximately 3:30 pm: car pool back to Tacoma Art Museum

This is a long day, and we realize that some of you may only choose to do the first half.



Tacoma Art Museum will cover the cost of museum admission, tours, and parking in Seattle.


Is lunch included?

No, lunch will not be covered by Tacoma Art Museum.

I will however make a reservation at the SAM TASTE Restaurant for those that would like to eat there. You can also arrange amongst yourselves to eat elsewhere. I have asked for some information from the restaurant about their price range and menu items, and I will forward you this info as soon as I receive it.


Can you bring your best friend?

You may invite a spouse or friend on this trip for free, but you must RSVP to me by May 15.


What should you wear?

The Olympic Sculpture Park is outdoors and covers 9 acres, and the tour does involve walking. Please wear your walking shoes and be ready for rain if we get so unlucky.


RSVP by May 15

Please answer the following questions when you RSVP:

Ÿ  Do you want to eat lunch at the SAM TASTE Restaurant?

Ÿ  Do you want to tour the Olympic Sculpture Park at 2:30 pm? This is a long day, and we realize that some of you may only choose to do the first half.

Ÿ  Are you bringing a guest?

Ÿ  Will you be a driver or a passenger in our car pool?


If you have any questions, let me know!

(and if you are scheduled to docent on June 2 – Sanjeev – I’m sure we can work something out.)
