Two Videos — Henry Architecture, Past and Present


Two videos about the Henry Art Gallery's architecture.

In Henry Architecture, Part I: 1926 Construction, we learn that the Henry Art Gallery is the first public art museum in the state of Washington. In 1926, Seattle businessman Horace C. Henry donated a prominent collection and the necessary funding to construct a museum on the University of Washington campus. Mr. Henry and the University of Washington selected the well-known Seattle-based architect, Carl F. Gould of the architectural partnership Bebb and Gould to build the museum.

In Henry Architecture, Part II: 1997 Addition, we learn about the Henry's major renovation and expansion. The Henry selected the renowned New York-based architectural firm, Gwathmey Siegel & Associates to expand the museum. This enormous project quadrupled the size of the museum from 10,000 to over 40,000 square feet and added two stories below the original building. These videos are part of a series highlighting the Henry's permanent collections and architecture. The series is a collaborative project between the Henry Art Gallery and Solstream Media.
