The Henry Art Gallery ("The Henry") is the art museum of the University of Washington in Seattle. Located on the west edge of the university's campus, it was founded in February, 1927, and was the first public art museum in the state of Washington. The Henry's exhibition program is largely devoted to contemporary art and the history of photography. The collection includes more than 25,000 objects. In 1982, the Henry inherited a sizable collection from the University of Washington's former Costume and Textile Study Center.
