    HENRY ARCHITECTURE, PART 1: 1926 CONSTRUCTION is one of two videos about the Henry Art Gallery's architecture.

    Did you know the Henry Art Gallery is the first public art museum in the state of Washington? In 1926, Seattle businessman Horace C. Henry donated a prominent collection and the necessary funding to construct a museum on the University of Washington campus. Mr. Henry and the University of Washington selected the well-known Seattle-based architect, Carl F. Gould of the architectural partnership Bebb and Gould to build the Henry Art Gallery.

    This video is part of a video series highlighting the museum's permanent collection and architecture. Visitors to the Henry can quickly and easily access the videos through their mobile devices by scanning QR codes printed on the museum's wall labels or on YouTube. The video series is a collaborative project between the Henry and Solstream Media http://solstream.net/ss.

  • Henry Architecture -- Past and Present Play all

    In 1926, Horace C. and Susan Henry donated their collection of 172 paintings along with $100,000 to the University of Washington for the construction of the Henry Art Gallery. Seattle architect Carl F. Gould, founder and director of the university's department of architecture, took on the task of designing the museum building.

    The Henry opened to the public on February 10, 1927. Seventy years later, in 1997, the museum completed a major expansion, quadrupling its size to better present and preserve its collections and to increase exhibitions and public programs. Internationally renowned architect Charles Gwathmey, in association with the Seattle architectural firm Loschky, Marquardt & Nesholm, designed the new Henry.
