On this tour, we will begin by visiting the Frye Art Museum, founded in 1952 by Seattle philanthropists Charles and Emma Frye. The Fryes gifted their collection of European art to the people of Seattle, in the belief that access to exceptional and contemporary creative artwork should always be free, and for all. We will tour Cris Bruch's exhibition Others Who Were Here, as well as tour the Frye's Founding Collection in an exhibition titled Frye Salon.

We will then re-board the coach for a short drive to the Asian Art Museum located in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill. After seeing the museum's collections, we will explore Volunteer Park.

While at AAM, housed within the 1933 Art Moderne building designed by Carl F. Gould, we will tour the exhibitions Paradox of Place: Contemporary Korean Art as well as Ai Weiwei: Colored Vases. There will also be an opportunity to view the continually rotating permanent collection on view. We will also have the opportunity to tour the McCaw Foundation Library for Asian Art and the Ann P. Wyckoff Teacher Resource Center.

In the historic Olmsted Volunteer Park, we will view the sculpture Black Sun by Isamu Noguchi, as we walk amongst the park's beautiful landscaping surrounding the reservoir built in 1901. Participants will have the opportunity to visit the nearby Conservatory which features flowering plants from all areas of the world, or walk up the 107 steps in the 1906 Water Tower to the observation deck with its 360° views.
