Mary Margaret Aiken and Richard Aiken Collection

The Washington Art Consortium’s third collection was a gift from Richard and Margaret Aiken, facilitated by Seattle gallery director Greg Kucera.

According to Consortium founder Virginia Wright, “The Aikens, who had no specific museum allegiance, decided to give their collection to the Consortium because they were attracted to the idea of sharing works of art and they felt their collection would reach a wider audience than it would in any one museum.”

The Aiken Collection of 24 works on paper focuses primarily on the works of American artists from the late twentieth century.
