University of Washington, Seattle, Henry Art Gallery
Founded in 1927, the Henry was the first public art museum in the state of Washington. The museum's major renovation and expansion, completed in April 1997, quadrupled the museum's size - from 10,000 square feet to over 40,000 square feet. Increased size allowed for the addition of a 154-seat auditorium, a multi-media gallery, café, bookstore and sculpture court along with improved facilities for art handling and storage and collections research. An architectural collage of glass, textured stainless steel and cast stone, designed by Charles Gwathmey, compliments the original red brick collegiate-Gothic structure designed by Carl Gould in the 1920s.
