George Tsutakawa: Language of Nature

BIMA honors Seattle native and master artist George Tsutakawa (1910 – 1997) with a major showing of his work, refreshing his legacy for the next generation of Pacific Northwesterners. A regional and international icon, his last major retrospective was produced by Bellevue Arts Museum, with a book by the University of Washington Press in 1990. We are excited to bring his work back to the forefront. This retrospective focuses on Tsutakawa’s work from 1950 forward and features sculptures, paintings, drawings, and lamps from family, private, and regional art museum collections — including one working fountain. An exhibition catalogue is available through the BIMA Store starting July 1.
