Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, Washington--page 3 (of 3 pages)

Venturi Rauch & Scott-Brown

Wide indoor staircase

Like the south wall of the exterior, this interior south wall echoes it with a processional staircase. The staircase leads from the entrance lobby to the second floor galleries. Sculptures of Chinese military figures and animals decorate it at intervals. Above the wide staircase, polychromed decorative arches enliven the way.

This lobby is no longer the main entrance of the museum. With the 2007 Expansion building, a new entrance was designed.
