  • This is a fantastic and very accessible art museum. Because of its small scale and its specific focus on Pacific Northwest Artists, the exhibitions are very accessible and you very the ability to be very close and feel a connection to the art. The docent at the desk was very knowledgeable and willing to engage in conversations about the exhibitions showing currently and about art (and Pacific Northwest Art) more generally. Note that I did refer to artists of the Pacific Northwest, not to Pacific Northwest Art as a specific genre of art. Though there are elements and examples here of what would be considered Pacific Northwest Art as a genre, that is not the focus of this museum. This is what I think makes the museum especially important as a cultural resource here in Washington state. It is because it spans all art genres in terms of medium, form, expression, or era, as long as the art is visual in its presentation (as opposed to performed, or written, or lived, etc.) and it is geographically connected to the Pacific Northwest, that makes this such an invaluable resource to those of us who live here.
  • Fabulous art museum. Free. Friendly. Nice gift shop. Wonderful exhibits rotating on a regular basis. Well done!
  • A hidden gem. Very nicely curated collection of NW art.
  • Well first of all I love museums, second of all I love free things. This being both earns it 4 stars, the fifth star is because it's actually pretty good.
  • I've only visited once, but plan to return. The exhibit I saw was brilliant. A photographer interviewed artists. Snippets of those interviews were placarded next to photos of the artists taken by the photographer. Each of the artists were asked to submit a couple works. So, you look at the photos, read the interview snippets, look at the art, then go back and connect artist with work, knowing a bit more about their character, both from their words and their faces. Well done! I'm guessing future exhibits will be just as fascinating.
