Virginia Wright, art collector and philanthropist who changed Seattle’s cultural landscape, dies at 91

The Virginia Wright Fund donated several well-known public sculptures to Seattle (including Barnett Newman’s “Broken Obelisk” in University of Washington’s Red Square and Jonathan Borofsky’s “Hammering Man” looming above Seattle Art Museum) as well as the campus of Western Washington University in Bellingham, her hometown (including works by Richard Serra, Nancy Holt, Bruce Nauman and others).
