Seattle on the Spot: The Photographs of Al Smith

Al Smith - Seattle on the SpotThrough June 15, 2018

Legendary photographer Al Smith was an explorer and his camera was the universal key that opened doors and gave him license to go anywhere. Seattle on the Spot: The Photographs of Al Smith, organized by Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI), gives visitors a rare peek into Smith’s historically significant collection that chronicles the African-American community during the mid-20th century in the Pacific Northwest. The exhibit also provides an entry point into national discussions about the history and changing character of Seattle and its evolving neighborhoods.

Jack Straw is pleased to host this satellite exhibition of Al Smith’s photos that are not part of the museum exhibition.
