Fitness and Conditioning for the Ski Season

Winter sports are coming! Now is a great time for a physical tune-up and some mobility, flexibility, and strength training to enhance your skiing and snowshoeing fun. You are invited to join us and the author of Fit By Nature, John Colver, for a presentation and question and answer session, and for a chance to practice his Daily Dozen exercise routine, designed to complement any outdoor endurance activity. If you’d like to participate, bring comfortable clothes and shoes and a yoga mat, or feel free to just watch and listen. John is a certified fitness trainer, mountain guide, hiker, skier, and writer. Based in Seattle, he has guided over a hundred climbs of Mount Rainier, and in three decades of backcountry adventures, he has coached people from beginners to professional athletes of all ages and fitness levels. Equal parts adventure, nature, community, and fitness, John’s philosophy of health is that time spent exercising in the great outdoors is the answer to a healthy body and mind. Come for a fun evening and plan to leave with a toolbox full of tips and ideas to prepare for getting out on the snow this winter.

October 24 - December 8, Winston Wachter

Annie Morris Exhibition

Winston Wächter is proud to announce our second solo exhibition with internationally acclaimed London based artist Annie Morris. Morris creates towers shaped sculptures from carved foam, plaster, sand and raw pigment, meant to resemble a three-dimensional artist’s palate. Inspired by her strength from personal struggles, Morris chooses to focus on the hopefulness and vibrancy of life. The seemingly weightless forms are a metaphor for pure joy and the ability to conquer the impossible. Each layer of her towers teeters over the other, threatening to fall, yet gently supporting each other’s balance.

Since completing her degree from École des Beaux-Arts Paris in 2002, Annie Morris has received international acclaim for her immediate and considered approach to drawing, sculpture and painting. Recently Morris was selected as the featured artist for the Paris Louis Vuitton flagship location. Morris has exhibited at The Royal Academy, London; Baku MoMA, Azerbaijan and The New Art Gallery, Walsall and Tate Gallery, St Ives.

September 1 - February 10, Museum of History and Industry

WW1 America

Empires were destroyed, millions perished, and the world was upended by a war meant to end all others. Making its West Coast debut at MOHAI on September 1, 2018 through February 10, 2019 WW1 America tells the story of one of history’s most remarkable moments.

The WWI era—1914 to 1919—saw America transformed. It was a time of wrenching extremes that pulled Americans between the poles of fear and hope, between deepening cynicism and broadening optimism. Through original artifacts, images, voices, interactives and multimedia presentations, WW1 America tells the extraordinary stories of Americans—both legendary and unsung—during this turbulent time.

“The City of Seattle welcomes this opportunity to explore the causes and consequences of World War I,” said Seattle Mayor Tim Burgess, “and also to salute the generations of veterans in our region who have served the nation at home and abroad.”

This powerful exhibit will coincide with the centennial of Armistice Day on November 11, 2018 the day the war ended and an especially important day of international observance in 2018 (known in the United States as Veterans Day).

Developed by the Minnesota History Center in partnership with the National Constitution Center, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, the Oakland Museum of California and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, WW1 America illustrates how the past can help us understand our nation and our world today.

We Are All Made of Light

We Are All Made Of Light, by Seattle-based artist Maja Petric, is an immersive art installation that utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to create interactive light and sound sculptures. These environments are formed as the AI-driven technology recognizes and captures the shape of visitors with encompassing light. Over the course of the exhibition, visitors’ physicality is recorded and represented through a collection of light forms, documenting the growing history of visitorship and space. Petric’s collaborators include AI Microsoft Researcher Mihai Jalobeanu and 3D Sound Artist Daniel Peterson.
