Selections from the Permanent Art Collection
This exhibition features over twenty artworks from BIMA’s Permanent Art Collection (PAC). This spring 2019 rotation from the PAC includes work by Bill Baran-Mickle, Barbara Helen Berger, Alfred Currier, Philip McCracken, Brad Rude, Roger Shimomura, Julie Speidel, Preston Wadley, Richard Jesse Watson, and Dion Pickering Zwirner.
The PAC is at the heart of our museum. It includes both promised and realized gifts of contemporary art and craft, focused on artists from the Puget Sound Region. Media includes painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics, glass, wood, artist’s books, fiber, and jewelry art.
BIMA collects works by artists at all stages of their careers. We do not have an acquisitions fund to purchase art. Instead, we rely on compelling donations from private collections, estates, galleries, and artists.
