Seattle arts patron Virginia Wright dies

SAM isn’t the only lucky recipient of Virginia Wright’s love for the visual arts. In the 1970s, she set up the Virginia Wright Fund, which essentially bankrolled a significant outdoor sculpture collection at Western Washington University in Bellingham. Wright also shepherded Seattle’s 1976 acquisition of “Adjacent, Against, Upon,” the monumental stone sculpture sited at Myrtle Edwards Park on the Seattle waterfront.
