Our project goal is $56 million. Construction may be complete, but there is still a great deal of work that remains. From designing beautiful gallery displays, to planning exciting and dynamic programs for visitors of all ages—your support at any level is still critical to our success.
The deadline to add an inscription to the camel pedestals when the museum reopens on February 8, 2020, has passed, however there is still limited space to have a name installed later in 2020. This is your last opportunity to pledge $1,000 or more and leave a legacy by engraving a name of your choosing on the pedestals of Seattle Asian Art Museum’s iconic camel sculptures.Learn More

The Asian Art Museum campaign is an opportunity to preserve our beautiful and historic museum for generations to come. You can help ensure that we are able to present the very best exhibitions and collections from several key pillars of Asian culture and history: Japan, China, Korea, and South Asia.
We will also better connect our historic building to beautiful Volunteer Park and grow our family and community events to encourage greater attendance by diverse audiences, now and in the future.
Art to Life
We are excited about what the future will bring for the museum and thrilled with the positive response received thus far from the community. Thank you for helping the Asian Art Museum and its cherished, world-renowned collection become a modern museum in a historic building.
