Seattle Art Museum To Close For 2 Weeks Next Year
The Seattle Art Museum will be closing three locations for two weeks next year.

The closure will take place from Jan. 31 to Feb. 13 and will affect the SAM in downtown, the Seattle Asian Art Museum at Volunteer Park, and the PACCAR Pavilion at the Olympic Sculpture Park.

SAM will also reduce staff in an effort to balance its budget.

This is the first time in 77 years the institution has closed its doors for budget reasons.
