Seattle Collects Northwest Coast Native Art

Feb 12 – May 17 2015

Seattle Art Museum

Simonyi Special Exhibition Galleries

In conjunction with Indigenous Beauty, the Seattle Art Museum presents Seattle Collects Northwest Coast Native Art, a complementary exhibition of 60 Northwest Coast Native works drawn from local private collections.

Iconic masks, wood sculpture, argillite carvings, and weavings reveal the unique styles developed over generations—from pre-contact to the present—by Native artists living along the Pacific coast and its inland waterways.
