The Jacob Lawrence Gallery is located on the first floor of the Art Building in room 132. It can be seen from Stevens Way, the main road on campus.

Getting Here

The UW provides driving directions to campus and parking information. They also have links for the various modes of public transportation, and a map showing the location of bike racks.

Note: except for special events such as football games and commencement, campus parking is free on Saturday afternoons when the Gallery is open.


Washington State employees may donate through the Combined Fund Drive.

Anyone may donate through the UW Foundation.

Every donor giving at least $60 as a single donation or an ongoing monthly pledge of $5 or more will receive a year-long subscription to the Gallery's forthcoming biannual, limited-edition journal, Monday.


The Jacob Lawrence Research Library is based on a collection donated by Seattle curator and cultural entrepreneur Robin Held.
