Ever wonder what Music and Art in Wright Park might look like without the rock? Well, there's a good example at Monarch Sculpture Park this week. The Art in the Park open house will open a retrospective exhibit of paintings, prints and sculptures by Valentine Welman, who had a long and somewhat well-known career at the University of Washington teaching painting, printmaking and sculpting. It's art. But not rock.
[Monarch Sculpture Park, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., $5 per person 12 and older, 8431 Waldrick Road SE, Olympia, monarchartcenter.org]
