Murmurations, a Seattle-Wide Arts Collaboration, Launches in May 2021

Seattle, WA, April 29, 2021

This May brings the launch of Murmurations, a new Seattle-wide arts collaboration spearheaded by six cultural institutions: Frye Art Museum, Henry Art Gallery, Jacob Lawrence Gallery, Northwest Film Forum, On the Boards, and Velocity Dance Center. Together, these organizations will present a series of multidisciplinary projects, including exhibitions, performances, screenings, community conversations, artist talks, and other programs co-developed with cultural organizations across the city.

Murmurations takes its name from the flight patterns of starling birds, whose survival depends on collective movement. The project emerged in 2020 from a shared need to find new structures for engaging and presenting creative practices to the public. Presentations under this umbrella will continue to unfold throughout 2021.
