This special exhibition, now on view in the windows along the outside the Discovery Center, highlights the work of six Seattle-area artists with over 20 artistic interpretations of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s work with partners over the last 20 years. These artworks are organized into four themes that are key to the foundation’s work:
- Ensuring more children and young people survive and thrive
- Empowering the poorest, especially women and girls
- Combating infectious diseases that particularly affect the poorest
- Inspiring people to take action to change the world
Artists began creating their artworks for this exhibition in January 2020 just as COVID-19 was spreading throughout the world. This had a strong influence on their work.
Hear from our featured artists about their reflections on the exhibit’s themes and creativity.
