Cascadia Art Museum joins our neighbors across the Pacific Northwest and people around the world to express our rejection of racism, discrimination, and violence.
A core tenet of our founding mission was and remains to actively identify and reveal the contributions of artists of color and other underrepresented individuals who have significantly shaped the visual and cultural identity of our region. We continue to share and elevate the previously untold stories of these artists whose lives and work have added to the richness of our society but whose legacies have been omitted from the history so many of us were taught.
Art is essential to helping us connect, process and learn from the perspectives and experiences of others. It is through the celebration of the diversity of Northwest artists that we hope to foster a deeper understanding of our history and promote a just, equitable, and vibrant future for all.

What our visitors are saying about their experience
Great modern, mid century, local art. I highly recommend this museum. It takes about 2 1/Leslie Mori
2 hours to view the 5 wonderful areas dedicated to the artists surrounding the Cascade Mountain Range. While inspired by the Native Americans, It is not Native American Art. Everything in the Cascadia Museum has never been seen, and it is not a traveling exhibit. It’s a must see.
Focusing on PNW artists from the beginning to mid century their collection treats our artists like Monet, as they should be treated. The changing exhibitions are fascinating and the curator has met most of the artists or their families. The rest he has studied to seem to know them. What a great with a unique energy.Chris B.
Beautiful, thoughtful, local, Northwest all describe this gem. Plus great food in the same building. Great date night spot. The gift shop should be avoided at all costs. You will find something to buy every time you go.David McLean
Small intimate space with rotating Pacific Northwest artists. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the Edmonds area.S.P. Dudley
