Community Gallery

The Washington State Historical Society is committed to preserving Washington's history and demonstrating its relevance to today's society. This commitment includes embracing the contributions of our community by providing a free exhibit space where organizations can curate their own displays in a gallery setting.

More about the Community Gallery

Located in a space shared with the Museum Store, the Community Gallery is designed as a venue that not only shares artistic works with a historical focus, but provides a learning opportunity in the process of curating, installing, promoting, and deinstalling museum works.

Those who are selected to display in the Community Gallery will do so under the guidance of Museum staff. Applications will only be accepted during the Application Period, and exhibits will run for 2-3 months each.
