The Bellingham Herald
Western Washington University's College of Fine and Performing Arts recently received a $250,000 gift from Seattle art patron Virginia Wright to create two new gallery spaces in Western's Performing Arts Center and to renovate a gallery that houses a collection of tapestries by Alexander Calder. The Calder tapestries will also be restored and preserved as part of the gift. Western will use the new gallery spaces to display select pieces from its recently expanded collection of Northwest art.
