Whatcom Museum Exhibits New Gifts and Acquisitions

The Whatcom Museum shows New Gifts and Acquisitions, on display January 22, 11 through June 5, 2011.

Featuring a selection of extraordinary artworks that transformed the Whatcom Museum’s collection in 2010, this exhibition of Northwest art includes paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, glass and ceramics.

Much of the art featured came to the Museum via an unprecedented donation of the Safeco Art Collection to the Washington Arts Consortium. Works by Dale Chihuly, Diem Chau, Hilda Morris, Barbara Earl Thomas, George Tsutakawa, Gerard Tsutakawa, and many, many more have significantly boosted the Museum’s promising sculpture collection, and solidified its prominence in both landscape paintings and work by Northwest artists.

The Whatcom Museum provides innovative, and interactive educational programs and exhibitions about art, nature and Northwest history.The museum occupies three distinctive and historically significant buildings in downtown Bellingham’s cultural district.
