Museum Exhibit, From The Vault: Warhol & Safeco

Join the Museum of Art for the exhibition, From The Vault – Recent Acquisitions: Warhol and Safeco, January 9 – March 31, 2012, dedicated in the memory of our dear friend Kelma Short.

The Museum of Art/WSU is thrilled to present two historic and unprecedented gifts in one exhibition: photographs by Andy Warhol and Northwest art from the Safeco Collection.

Andy Warhol photographs
In 2008, the Museum of Art received a major donation from the Andy Warhol Foundation of 150 photographs. Warhol, who died an untimely death in 1987 at age 59, is one of a handful of artists who defined art in the 20th Century and re-invented the role of the artist.

Art from Safeco
In 2011, the museum received 39 works of art by prominent Northwest artists from the Safeco Art Collection, the oldest and most renowned corporate collection of Northwest art. With this gift the WSU permanent collection has instantly expanded in both quantity and quality.

Located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center. Hours are Mon – Sat, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., open until 7 p.m. on Thurs and closed on Sun. For more information please call (509) 335-1910 or visit our website at
