A mask or other suitable face covering is required indoors when other people are present and in all public and common areas, such as lobbies, hallways, stairways, restrooms, elevators and shared vehicles. Masks are also encouraged in crowded, outdoor areas. To learn more about masks, such as what types of masks will offer you protection, view the CDC masking website.
If you are attending an in-person WWU event, check the event details for updates before attending. All event attendees will have to verify proof of vaccination or negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event. Respect the community and yourself by staying home if you feel sick. Some in-person events may have virtual attendance options. Stay healthy, stay safe, stay inspired!
The exhibition features five of the major contemporary art collectors in the Northwest: Robert and Honey Dootson, Mr. and Mrs. Richard C. Hedreen, Mr. and Mrs Robert M. Sarkis, Mr. and Mrs. Bagley Wright, and a private collector from Vancouver, B.C. From their own private discussions on contemporary art and with remarkable foresight and conviction, these collectors have acquired for their own residences major works by some of the artists who came to the critical foreground in the 1980s. Only through their extraordinary generosity has the Wester Gallery been able to assemble such a strong statement on the decade of the eighties.
