The art – and the philanthropist – that shaped Seattle

In the years since the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, Virginia “Jinny” and Bagley Wright helped define the “city of tomorrow” through their wide-ranging philanthropic efforts. One of their largest beneficiaries was the Seattle Art Museum. The extraordinary new exhibit “City of Tomorrow: Jinny Wright and the Art That Shaped a New Seattle” features 60 pieces from a collection over 300 works of modern and contemporary art that the Wrights gifted to the museum. It runs now through January 18, 2021.
