The James and Janie Washington Foundation is the most amazing museum in Seattle you've never heard of. It's the house where the Washingtons lived for decades—he was an artist, she was a nurse, both fought racism. In the modest but genteel living room, a prominently displayed lithograph depicting a slave auction is hung next to proud African sculpture; out back, in the studios and in the yard, visiting young artists continue to make sculpture, sound, installation, and performance pieces in honor of the Washingtons. Eastern Washington–based Nik Meisel is the new artist in residence, and he's been transforming the place with a little of all of the above.
