The New Burke Museum, Seattle
Work is progressing on the new Burke Museum building on the Seattle campus of the University of Washington. Walls are up, and a roof frame appears to be covering the construction. The single-pitch shed style roof is inspired by the traditional structures of the Coast Salish people of Puget Sound. The opening is set for 2019.
The old Museum, with its impressive collection of Northwest Coast art, continues to be open to the public. The Burke’s annual Native Art Market will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at the museum. http://www.burkemuseum.org/
