Yes, SJIMA exhibits stunning artworks and many with powerful messages, too.
As SJIMA works toward being recognized as a prominent Pacific Northwest arts organization, embracing diversity and cultural awareness, our exhibitions emphasize our shared humanity, values, love of our special place and address social issues of our time.
SJIMA’s exhibits make statements about climate change (Food for Thought-Dash), plastic pollution of the oceans (Portrait of an Ocean -Surgent), protecting fragile waters (Liminal Currents - Palmer), endangered species (DEEP DIVE), racism (PINK PEW), hoarding (STUFF- Wheston), African American quilting traditions (Conversations with Gee’s Bend) and women’s reproductive freedom (Domestic Bliss), to name a few.
Visitors have learned about our endangered orcas and salmon, but also the 113 other threatened species in our Salish Sea. And they left wanting to take specific actions to help protect our waters.
