Recent Acquisitions: Selections from the Safeco Art Collection

Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture
Resilient Young Pine, Tempera on Paper, 1944, Morris Graves. Gift of the Washington Art Consortium through gift of Safeco Insurance, a member of the Liberty Mutual Group, 2017.
Seattle-based Safeco Insurance began collecting art in the 1970s and sought to build a collection that reflected “the creativity and diversity of the communities it served.” Recognized nationally as a model for corporate collecting, the Safeco Art Collection evolved to capture a uniquely Pacific Northwest aesthetic. Eventually, the collection was distributed amongst several Washington state institutions. The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture is proud to be entrusted with a portion of the Safeco Art Collection and to preserve its legacy. Oct. 3-Feb. 7, 2022; open Tue-Sun from 10 am-5 pm.
