Event Overview

The essence of the Korean term meot encompasses charm, style, elegance, beauty, and creativity, along with highly refined aesthetic sensibilities. Frank Bayley (1939–2022), a generous art patron and distinguished collector of East Asian art along with Western prints and drawings, embodied the philosophy of meot as he appreciated and promoted Korean art and culture. The term describes not only his art collection but also his friendships, particularly with Korean artists. During his lifetime, he gifted 86 works to the Seattle Art Museum, and a significant bequest upon his passing contributed over 280 additional artworks to the museum.

Meot is guest curated by Hyonjeong “HJ” Kim Han, Joseph de Heer Curator of Arts of Asia at the Denver Art Museum.

Meot runs from August 29, 2024, to March 2, 2025. The museum is open Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Why does Seattle need this directory?


Covid has ruined the travel plans of so many people.  Maybe you are one of them.  Family trips, honeymoons, first time overseas trips postponed and cancelled.  Please explore this directory to create your own Round-the-World experience without traveling far from Seattle.  


Believe it or not, in 2022, New York City passed a law granting non-US citizens the right to vote in certain local and municipal elections.  Will Seattle follow NYC?  Time will tell.  If that comes to be, then this directory should be indispensable.  Let us know what you think.
