Calling All Architects!

Are you a member of AIA Seattle? Planning on taking a UW campus tour with Seattle Architecture Foundation this summer? Then you’re in luck — The Henry has worked out a special deal just for you with these organizations.

For the run of “The Ghost of Architecture” — open now through September 29 — AIA members can show their membership cards and get half-price admission to the Henry.

Participants the UW Campus tours organized by Seattle Architecture Foundation will receive a ticket good for free admission to the Henry the day of their tour.

Curated from recent gifts and promised gifts to our permanent collection, “The Ghost of Architecture” focuses on contemporary works that invoke architecture without citing it directly. Architecture or the architectural dimension is referenced by the artists in the show, either as a displaced or isolated fragment, as fantasy or folly, as the site of ordinary or extraordinary events, or as memory or the missing context in larger narratives.

Featured artists include: Kevin Appel, assume vivid astro focus, Edward Burtynsky, Jacob Dahlgren, Carsten Höller, Los Carpinteros, Christian Marclay, and Shirin Neshat, among others.
