Showcasing Seattle's diversity

The Ethnic Heritage Art Gallery (EHAG) was founded in January 2009 by a coalition of four City of Seattle Affinity Groups: City Light Black Employees Association (CLBEA), Filipino American Civic Employees (FACES), Latino City Employees (LCE), and City of Seattle Native American Employees (CANOES). Recognizing that art displayed within the City properties, as well as the community in general, was dominated by Euro-centric art, the coalition set out to provide a space dedicated to raising the visibility of local artists of color and giving them opportunities to tell their cultural/ethnic stories through their art.
