Boeing Flight Path

To celebrate the centennial of The Boeing Company, MOHAI invites visitors to journey through an exploration of Boeing’s impact on Seattle over 100 years, from flying boats on Lake Union to the launch of the Dreamliner.

MOHAI visitors can travel through True Northwest and the Bezos Center for Innovation galleries and rediscover Seattle’s history through the lens of Boeing’s first century.

Special highlights showcasing the Boeing story include:

  • Vintage models of Boeing aircraft and rare images filling the Boeing Tower;
  • One-of-a-kind artifacts that reflect Boeing in unexpected ways, including a Pocock Racing Shell and a stewardess uniform from the Boeing-owned United Airlines;
  • An interactive oral history experience bringing the Boeing story to life through the words of those who lived it;
  • The legendary B-1, Boeing’s very first commercial aircraft built in 1919, soaring through the Grand Atrium;
  • Boeing patents and prototypes in the museum’s Bezos Center for Innovation;
  • And opportunities to leave behind personal Boeing memories!

Check back for special programs throughout the centennial year.

Miya Ando - Tasogare/Twilight

Winston Wächter Fine Art Seattle is proud to announce Tasogare/Twilight (The Time of Moonlight, Sunlight and Starlight), our premiere solo exhibition with painter Miya Ando. The title Tasogare is the Japanese word for twilight, the time of day when sunlight, moonlight and starlight work together to transform the sky. She peacefully focuses our attention on the moment at hand, and reminds us that all time is in transition and temporal. Ando pays homage to her Japanese heritage of sword making and Buddhism, creating meditative landscapes on metal, using dye, urethane and resin. The careful selection of these materials allows Ando to produce pieces, which shift in the light, changing with each angle and viewer.

Miya Ando received a bachelor degree in East Asian Studies from the University of California at Berkeley and attended Yale University to study Buddhist iconography and imagery. Ando is the recipient of many awards, including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2012. Her work has been exhibited extensively all over the world, including a recent show curated by Nat Trotman of the Guggenheim Museum. Miya Ando has produced numerous public commissions, most notably a thirty-foot tall commemorative sculpture in London built from World Trade Center steel which is installed permanently at Zaha Hadid’s Aquatic Centre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Her large-scale installation piece ‘Emptiness the Sky’ (Shou Sugi Ban) is featured in the 56th Venice Biennale, in the ‘Frontiers Reimagined’ Exhibition at the Museo Di Palazzo Grimani.
