Who We Are

Cascadia Art Museum is an educational, nonprofit organization that celebrates the rich tradition of the visual arts and design in the Northwest during the period 1860-1970.

The museum provides enriching experiences for the community and visitors alike through original exhibitions, public programs, publications and educational outreach. Cascadia Art Museum seeks to reassess the hierarchy of Northwest art history by advancing the work of women, minority, and other artists who historically made substantial contributions to the region’s cultural identity. Cascadia believes that recognizing these hitherto neglected artists gives us a fuller and more comprehensive understanding of Northwest art history.

“Our family was so excited to learn about the music in the museum program at Cascadia Art Museum and even more so to learn about the performance of Hwaen Ch’uqi and String Virtuosi.  Our daughter is taking orchestra in school and plays the violin; we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to provide exposure to a world renowned musician and composer to provide inspiration for her.  We love that the museum is providing this sort of program to the community in Edmonds and we love the atmosphere!”

“I’m so thankful we have a museum in our community that celebrates local artists and that is a destination museum attracting art-lovers and people who are curious about our local artistic heritage from far and wide. If I was writing a guidebook to Washington State, I’d say Cascadia Art Museum is a must to see and experience.”

“Great modern, mid century, local art. I highly recommend this museum. It takes about 2 1/2 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.”

“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.”
