The Seattle Art Museum (aka SAM) is a freakin’ treasure. Let’s just get that out of the way first. With 25,000 pieces and 300,000 square feet of space, you’re sure to find something to like.
The permanent collection
My favorite period is mid-century American art and the SAM has a pretty impressive collection. Warhol, Katz, Johns, Ruscha, Rothko are all on permanent display.
