Celebrating Richard Andrews

This Spring, Richard Andrews is stepping down as director of the Henry Art Gallery, after 20 years in the position. Located on campus at the University of Washington, the Henry Art Gallery is the leading contemporary and modern art museum in the Pacific Northwest.

Colleagues, friends and family commemorated his tenure at a dinner and celebration hosted by Bill and Ruth True at Western Bridge on March 7, 2008. Richard Andrews’ 20 years of leadership have had a profound impact on the growth and development of the Henry and he leaves behind a potent legacy.
