Cascadia Art Museum features artwork created exclusively by artists active in the Northwest during the mid-19th through the mid-20th centuries. With few exceptions, this fertile period of our creative history has been largely overlooked and understudied, and we are excited to be able to bring it to both students and educators. We are pleased to offer both guided tours led by a trained Museum docent and self-guided tours, which allows the educator to lead their own students through the Museum. Cascadia Art Museum is aligned with State and Common Core Standards. We engage Community through FREE admission for Students and Children under 18.
