A new exhibit called Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is coming to the Seattle Art Museum, known as SAM, featuring the works of Paul Revere, Winslow Homer, John Trumbull and more. In conjunction with the exhibit, the historic Mayflower Park Hotel in downtown Seattle has teamed up with SAM for a special Pursuit of Happiness Package. The package includes a classic or deluxe guestroom at the Mayflower Park Hotel, VIP exhibit tickets for two as well as complimentary valet parking.

This special exhibit features extraordinary holdings of American art from the Yale University Gallery. The exhibit showcases original artworks that populate our history textbooks, images that have shaped our understanding of American history for the last two hundred years.

"The Mayflower Park Hotel is very proud of the ongoing relationship we have had with SAM for the last 15 years. As an historical hotel we know the importance of offering our guests cultural packages that tie into what makes America great,” states Paul Ishii, General Manager for the Mayflower Park Hotel. “This exhibit takes us back to the beginning."

Rates for the Mayflower Park Hotel’s Pursuit of Happiness Package start at $175 for a classic guestroom and $195 for a deluxe room. The package is available from February 26 through May 25, 2009.
