In this blog, members of the Henry staff, members of Seattle’s arts community, and artists can provide insight and informal commentary on exhibitions, programs, events, and arts issues while inviting members of our audience and readers to join in.
The Henry Art Gallery seeks to engage diverse audiences in the powerful experience of artistic invention and serves as a catalyst for the creation of new work that inspires and challenges. Exhibitions, collections, and public programs stimulate research and teaching at the University of Washington, provide a creative wellspring for artists, and reveal a record of modern artistic inquiry from the advent of photography in the mid-19th century to the multidisciplinary art and design of the 21st. The Henry was founded in 1927 and was the first public art museum in the state of Washington. In 2007, the Henry will celebrate its 80th anniversary.
