Opened in 1952, Frye Art Museum is among the most discreet art venues in Seattle and home to many masterpieces that deserve to be admired. Collections originally from the legacy of Charles and Emma Frye, a prominent couple from Seattle, have been enriched over the years through new acquisitions from private donors.
Works of American artists from the 19th and 20th centuries are displayed alongside those of German, Austrian and French painters. Paintings from symbolist Franz von Stuck – a founding member of the movement known as “The Munich Succession” – are well worth seeing. The museum also boasts a magnificent collection of old, mostly European books. In parallel, the very culturally vibrant Frye Art Museum offers various workshops open to the general public and organises various concerts and conferences. As its patrons wanted, museum entry is entirely free.
