Microsoft is the last corporate art collection standing in this landscape littered with what the likes of WaMu and Safeco once held (the ones Chase didn't abscond to New York with, that is). And Microsoft recently got a new curator: Lele Barnett, founder of that great, scrappy little McLeod Residence space in Belltown, which shut down a while ago. Yay!

So I asked Microsoft if I could visit and tour the collection, take a look at what they're up to.

They said no. Just no.

Sorry. I can't tell you what's in there.
