Northwest Art on Paper

April 10 through May 20, 2011

The exhibition premiers the Washington Art Consortium’s newest collection featuring Northwest works on paper. The collection includes 82 artists and has a thematic format focusing on the Northwest’s distinct geography and topography, urban habitats and inhabitants, and long standing wish for connectivity. The collection is part of the gift of Safeco Insurance, one of the country’s leading corporate collections of Northwest Art. Safeco chose the Consortium as the recipient because of its unique national model of collaboration among seven institutions in the state, Western being one of the founding members.
