Virtual Member Overview: City of Tomorrow

Oct 16 2020

Seattle Art Museum


5 PM – 5:35 PM

SAM members are invited to join Catharina Manchanda, Jon & Mary Shirley Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, for an in-depth virtual exhibition overview of City of Tomorrow: Jinny Wright & The Art That Shaped A New Seattle. Even though we are unable to gather in the auditorium for this exhibit overview, we hope you will join us for this live virtual event prior to the member preview weekend and learn why you can't tell the story of Seattle's art world without telling the story of Virginia Wright.

This overview is a member-only event. The registration link will be sent via email. You can also contact us at 206.654.3210 or
