The Olympic Sculpture Park is a public 9-acrea park along the waterfront of Seattle near Alaska Way that opened on January 20, 2007. It is situated at the northern end of the Seattle seawall and the southern end of Myrtle Edwards Park. The former industrial site was occupied by the oil and gas corporation Unocal until the 1970s and subsequently became a contaminated brownfield before the Seattle Art Museum proposed to transform the area into one of the only green spaces in Downtown Seattle. The park is operated by the Seattle Art Museum, which also operates an expanded main branch at First Avenue and University Street and the Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill. As a free-admission public outdoor sculpture park with both permanent and visiting installations, it is a unique institution in the United States. The Eagle, 1971 Painted steel Alexander Calder
