First Saturday at SAAM

For the longest time I've wanted to check out the Seattle Asian Art Museum, but never quite got around to doing it. The one time I did find myself in the neighborhood, it was under renovation. Now it's reopened, so it's time to finally go and see what it's all about.

Current exhibits include Chinese paintings and calligraphy, along with a video installation and some Buddhist pieces. As it turns out, the SAAM is free on not only the first Thursday, but the first Saturday of the month as well, so it's already earned some points in my favor. It remains to be seen if it can top the Frye as most-favored museum, seeing as that museum is all free, all the time, but it will be nice to get some exposure on a different forms of art regardless.
