The Seattle Art Museum boasts a collection that includes nearly 25,000 works of art showcasing global cultures and offering historical perspectives. The attraction, which has been an NTA member since 2014, has three temporary exhibits that will debut later this year.

"Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts and Crafts Movement” will trace the group of artists—Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, John Everett Millais and William Holman Hunt—who refused to embrace the typical artist methods of London’s Royal Academy of Arts. The exhibit features more than 140 paintings, sculpture, decorative art pieces, drawings and textiles, many of which have never been on exhibit outside the U.K.  
On display June 13–Sept. 8

As part of “Flesh and Blood: Italian Masterpieces from the Capodimonte Museum,” guests can see the works of Italy’s top artists that are part of the collection at the Naples-based museum. The exhibit shows how renowned Italian artists revealed human emotions such as love, devotion and suffering through paintings of the human form.  
On display Oct. 17–Jan. 26, 2020

Known for his large-scale sculpture pieces, Aaron Fowler will bring his first solo show to SAM late this year. “Aaron Fowler: 2019 Knight | Lawrence Prize Winner” will feature the artist’s works, which are drawn from found materials and dive into themes related to black culture, American history and everyday life.  
On display Dec. 12–June 14, 2020
