  • Henry Art GalleryHenry Art Gallery Seattle, Washington
    The Henry Art Gallery is located on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, Washington, an art museum that was started in 1927, although the nucleus of the collection was shown in the added wing of Horace C. Henry's home, who showing his collection publicly in 1917. The present museum building was enlarged in 1997 so that now it is 40,000 square feet. Horace opened the new wing of his home for public viewing of his collection for 10 hours each week, also financing much of the new museum. The gallery's exhibition program is mostly contemporary art and the history of photography, with recent displays including single exhibitions by Maya Lin, Axel Leiber, James Turrell, Lynn Hershman Leeson and Doug Aitken and group showings like W.O.W. - The Work of the Work from 2004 to 2005. The collection contains more than 20,000 pieces, with strong holdings in photography, both contemporary and historical, because of the part gift and purchase of the Elaine and Joseph Monsen collection. The gallery did inherit the university's old costume and textile study center's collection in 1982, as well as having a James Turrell skyspace called Light Reign, that is illuminated in the evening by color shifting LEDs that are set behind frosted glass. Just like the Seattle baseball stadium, the skyspace has a retractable roof, to help accentuate the beautiful skyspace. The gallery makes available its collections for general public use or research by giving in-house and online public access via the Reed Collection Study Center, in-house digital information gallery or DIG and new online catalogs.

  • Seattle AquariumSeattle Aquarium Seattle, Washington
    The Seattle Aquarium is found on Pier 59 in the Seattle, Washington Elliot Bay waterfront and opened in 1977; owned and run by the city's Department of Parks and Recreation. It has grown into an important facility for marine conservation and has helped 800,000 visitors and 50,000 students every year learn and find out what kinds of impact people have on marine life on this earth. It just opened a new 18,000 square foot expansion, in 2007, that has brought many new exciting features. A new 2,625 square foot gift shop was opened, as well as the Seattle Aquarium Cafe, plus the two new exhibits include the Crashing Waters and Window on Washington Waters. Other marvelous displays include; marine mammals, life on the edge, underwater dome with rockfish, sharks, lingcod and salmon, life of a drifter, Puget Sound fish, Pacific coral reef, birds and shores, ocean oddities with short dragon fish, cowfish, potbelly seahorses, pinecone fish and flying gurnards. Some of the other enjoyable exhibits include; orca whale calls, chance to stand in the middle of glowing jellyfish, and a fantastic moment to touch a sea anemone's tender tentacles.  Examples of what goes on in these exhibits includes many wonderful learning opportunities like the window on Washington waters, where a 120,000 gallon tank, with a fabulous 20 by 40 foot angled acrylic window opens into the waters behind it with creatures that are living in the Neah Bay, like salmon, rockfish, sea anemones and many other types of fish that live in the kelp infested waters. Divers go into the tank three times each day with a special mask that allows them to communicate with those that are standing behind the window. A very exciting experience to be sure. In the Pacific coral reef tank you can see all the colorful and beautiful fish that live here, while sharks slowly swim past. This 25,000 gallon shows what a coral reef looks like as it grows, with all kinds of life thriving and floating past your face.
