Frye Art Museum
A free museum built around a founding collection of late-19th and early-20th-century painting, with a rotating exhibitions program focused on regional and international contemporary creative practice.
Located on Seattle’s First Hill, the Frye Art Museum first opened its doors in 1952 as the legacy of Charles and Emma Frye, prominent early-twentieth-century Seattle business leaders and art collectors.
The collection includes nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century German and American paintings, as well as more contemporary works that bridge visual art, media, and installation.
In addition to the founding collection of Charles and Emma Frye always on view, the Museum hosts a wide variety of rotating exhibitions featuring local, national, and international artists. Admission to the Museum is always free.
