JIM OLSON: ART IN ARCHITECTURE 

March 10, 2013 – June 9, 2013

AS THE FIRST COMPREHENSIVE EXHIBITION DEVOTED TO THE CAREER of Jim Olson, one of the Northwest’s most significant architects, founder of Olson Kundig Architects and designer of the Lightcatcher building, Art in Architecture provides a retrospective of Olson’s first fifty years in architecture, highlighting his residential legacy, as well as his public design work.

Along with the projects themselves, the exhibition explores Olson’s artistic, cultural, natural and personal influences and includes a range of materials that showcase Olson’s process. Original artwork from selected residences, as well as a custom-designed art installation provides visitors with a first-hand experience of Olson’s use of space and collaboration with art.
