IN THE SPIRIT Contemporary Native Arts is an annual juried exhibition held at the Washington State History Museum each summer. Artist Awards, Purchase Prize awards, and People’s Choices awards are selected annually as well. Awards are selected by members of the advisory committee, the jury, and collections professionals at the Washington State Historical Society.
The 2020 IN THE SPIRIT Contemporary Native Arts exhibition was shared virtually as an online exhibition with free access, because the museum was closed due to the historic COVID-19 pandemic. The awards for 2020 were also announced virtually.
Please join us in celebrating the talented Native artists whose works were selected for the 2020 exhibition, and congratulating the award recipients.2020 IN THE SPIRIT Awards Video
