"Corporate Legacy - A Continuing Cultural Gift" @ The Wright Space

June 2010 Regina Hackett:

[excerpt from review] "Aside from the coma-inducing title, the exhibit is a fine time capsule for a certain kind of NW art: strong in painting, ceramics and glass, barely there in photography and nonexistent in video, installation and anything that rests uneasily in a specific medium. The collection tends toward the conservative [...]  Once abundant, corporate collections are now a rarity. Safeco's rewarded artists, art at its source. In the 1980s, it was easy to take it for granted. Now, it appears to represent a better time."
