The University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design is pleased to announce an agreement between the school and the Seattle Art Museum, wherein all current students (registered majors), faculty, and staff of the School will receive free admission to both SAM and the Asian Art Museum. As part of this new arrangement, select SAM curators and conservators have joined the School as affiliate faculty; their names are listed below:
Barbara Brotherton: Curator of Native American Art
Elizabeth Brown: Associate Objects Conservator
Ping Foong: Foster Foundation Curator of Chinese Art
Chiyo Ishikawa: Susan Brotman Deputy Director of Art | Curator of European Painting and Sculpture
Patricia Junker: Ann M. Barwich Curator of American Art
Catarina Manchanda: Jon & Mary Shirley Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art
Xiaojin Wu: Curator of Japanese and Korean Art
These new appointments join Nicholas Dorman, Chief Conservator at SAM, who has been an affiliate faculty member since 2008.
With strong conviction of the positive symbiotic potential of this partnership and with gratitude to those within the School and the SAM, whose collaborative efforts have been realized in this new relationship, the school looks forward to the myriad possibilities for enrichment in the educational and cultural lives of our constituents.
The school would also like to recognize that starting this academic year, Henry Art Gallery has offered School students, staff, and faculty free admission to all Henry events and programs, in addition to the free museum admission they already receive. We value our partnership with the Henry and are honored that the Henry and SAM share our commitment to expanding artistic experience beyond the walls of our respective institutions.
