Works of art are frozen in time, but Art Museums are living entities that can change and grow… The follwing video is slighty dated (2016) but gives you a great insight in what Seattle Asian Art Museum at Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill offers.
But talking of museums as living entities that may change and grow, this is also the case with the Seattle Art Museum (commonly referred to as ‘SAM’). SAM closed its downtown location earlier to allow for an extensive remodeling process that almost doubled the museum’ exhibition space.
In 1994, the Volunteer Park facility reopened as the Seattle Asian Art Museum. In 2007 the Olympic Sculpture Park opened to the public, culminating an 8-year process. Since 1994, the Seattle Asian Art Museum (SAAM) has been located in the original Deco/Moderne SAM facility (dating back to 1933) in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill, Seattle.
