Over the next few weeks, we will be sending you “virtual visit” videos from our curator, David Martin, and from our volunteer docents describing their favorite works in the museum. Join us as we explore the history and lives of the talented and forgotten Northwest artists.
Museums are always a place of beauty and community. During this especially uncertain and stressful time, we hope that the power of art helps you find comfort and stokes your curiosity.
