Join us for an evening in celebration of the map is not the territory and help choose a piece to add to the Museum's permanent collection.
We are delighted to invite you to the Northwest Art Council's Purchasing Party, one of the most fun and unusual events that the Council has to offer. The purchasing party will consist of an in-depth tour of the exhibition led by Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Northwest Art, Grace Kook-Anderson. The tour will highlight each artist along with one of their works. Members will then have the opportunity to cast their vote for which piece will be added to the permanent collection. This is a rare opportunity for the members of NWAC to have a hand in determining the shape of the Museum's collection!

About the exhibition:
The map is not the territory is part of a triennial series featuring regional artists exploring place and boundaries. This inaugural exhibition focuses along the eastern edge of the Pacific Ocean stretching from Oregon through Washington and Vancouver, B.C., up to Alaska. The artists in this exhibition seek to reconceive and reimagine the Northwest. What does it mean to make art in this region today, and what are the immediate inspirations and pressing concerns that drive each artist’s work?
