It isn't enough to say we "need" the humanities because we ARE the humanities. They are gifts to us from our predecessors, ancestors, and contemporaries. They represent the imagination, [the] innovative, and ask us to think deeply—as the greatest philosophers and artists have always asked us for the last 2,500 years—about our experience, and to think beyond the various intellectually lazy forms of ideology circulating in America today.

Traveling Exhibits

Partnerships with the Smithsonian Institution, the Washington State Historical Society and other organizations allow us to bring an exciting array of traveling exhibits to small museums and other venues across the state.

Exhibits Program Brings Museum-Quality Exhibits to Underserved Areas

Since 2004, Humanities Washington has partnered with organizations including the Smithsonian Institution and the Washington State Historical Society (WSHS) to bring high-quality museum exhibitions to all corners of the state. Our Traveling Exhibits program also helps build the capacity of small museums and other humanities venues.

Our current exhibit, Hope in Hard Times: Washington During the Great Depression, was curated by WSHS and will tour eight communities during 2013-14.

Previous exhibits have included Journey Stories, Key Ingredients: America by Food, New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music, Between Fences and Yesterday’s Tomorrows: Past Visions of the American Future.
