Henry Art Gallery

The Henry Art Gallery museum's exhibitions bring important works of art to Seattle from throughout the world and and noted for its large collection of art from the Northwest.  Exhibitions at the Henry frequently present recent or newly commissioned work of visually and conceptually challenging artists such as Ann Hamilton, Gary Hill , Kara Walker, Roni Horn, Leone & Macdonald, Josiah McElheny, Jennifer Steinkamp, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle and Tony Oursler.

In 2003, the Henry opened a permanent Skyspace by artist James Turrell. The Skyspace employs light, space, and atmosphere to create a unique visual experience. The Skyspace is not only a spectacular part of the museum’s permanent collection, it is now an important part of the Henry’s architecture, and a radiant addition to the University District’s skyline.

The museum also hosts nationally and internationally touring exhibitions such as DEEP STORAGE, The Arsenal of Memory, Thinking Print, Inside Out: New Chinese Art  and Andy Warhol: Drawings, 1942 - 1987.

Hours: Tuesday–Sunday, 11:00 am–5:00 pm

Closed: Mondays, New Year’s Day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. All holidays are subject to change without notice.
