Fossils Uncovered

Ongoing | The Burke Museum

Earth’s 4.5 billion-year history is a continuing saga of dynamic change.

Events from ice ages to splitting continents influenced what survived, how life evolved, and what went extinct.

See the only real dinosaur fossils on display in Washington state (including one of the best-preserved T. rex skulls in the world), intricate plant fossils that document past patterns of climate change, colossal mammals that roamed Washington state during the last Ice Age, and more in the Fossils Uncovered gallery at the Burke Museum. Discover how fossils reveal evidence of Earth’s transformation over time—and what the future might hold.

Ongoing | The Henry Art Gallery

The Henry Art Gallery‘s EL SUEÑO: THE FLOWERS THAT BLOOM offers a snapshot of and engagement opportunities with EL SUEÑO (meaning “the dream” in spanish), a Seattle-based dance company who uses dance as a platform for community engagement, healing, and empowerment of marginalized communities. Founded by Alicia Mullikin, EL SUEÑO actively weaponizes dance against cultural erasure and systematically deconstructs harmful narratives about brown bodies in hopes of providing representation, cultural restoration, and nurturing environments for the next generation of dance artists.
