The Stranger

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Seattle is a major threat to The Stranger's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage of everything happening in Seattle. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Seattle's largest art museum was founded in the 1930s by a collector of Asian art. Today most of the Asian collection is housed at the Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park, but at this downtown location, you'll find changing special exhibitions as well as collections from around the world and dating back to the Roman Empire—though the greatest strength is still the Asian collection. At this location there's also a cafe and restaurant, a bookstore, and an extremely welcoming lobby where you can just hang out and watch First Avenue go by free of charge. Plus, check out shows happening at SAM Gallery.
