Frye Art Museum information
This small museum on First Hill preserves the collection of Charles and Emma Frye. The Fryes collected more than 1000 paintings, mostly 19th- and early-20th-century European and American pieces, and a few Alaskan and Russian artworks.
If this inspires a stifled yawn, think again. Since its 1997 expansion, the Frye has gained a hipness that it once lacked, with fresh ways of presenting its artwork, music performances, poetry readings and interesting rotating exhibits from traveling painters to local printmakers.
