In an effort to slow the rising number of COVID-19 cases in our region, Governor Inslee has ordered the temporary closure of museums as well as many other indoor services across the state. In following with this order, Cascadia Art Museum will be closed for a minimum of four weeks, effective immediately.
We are dedicated to doing our part to help keep our community safe, and we deeply appreciate your support during this year of great change. Our staff and volunteers have worked hard to implement new protocols that follow the guidance of public health officials, and we are grateful to you for following these practices during your visits to the museum over the past two months.
Thank you also to everyone who has made a donation or renewed your membership this year, even when you couldn't visit the museum. Your gifts helped us to weather the storm of a six-month closure and with your continued partnership, we will get through this again, together.
Like you, we believe that art helps us connect with one another and teaches us to see the beauty in the world around us. During this closure, we are eager to share our current exhibitions with you through new Virtual Visit videos with our curator, David F. Martin, and to offer lots of creative fun through upcoming online Art Exploration workshops. Stay tuned for great Cascadia Art Museum content that you can enjoy from the comfort and safety of your home.
As we embark on this season of giving, we ask for your continued support during these unpredictable times. There are many ways to help the museum get to the day when we can reopen our doors to the public and welcome you back. You can immediately support Cascadia by:
- Purchasing or renewing your annual membership
- Making a 100% tax-deductible year-end gift
- Shopping locally at our Winter Marketplace online or in-person at our Museum Store (limited to 25% occupancy)
Thank you for the important role you play in our Cascadia community. Take good care, and we look forward to celebrating Northwest art and design heritage with you soon.

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
