The Magnificent Steelhead

Oct. 10, 2012 – Nov. 15, 2012

"Celebrated by anglers since the days of Zane Grey, treasured by indigenous peoples for 10,000 years, and named Washington's State Fish—the steelhead has always carried great significance."

- Dylan Tomine, writer, Bainbridge Island

The Burke is pleased to present the exhibit, "steelhead art," assembled by the Wild Steelhead Coalition in support of their mission to increase the return of wild steelhead to the rivers and streams of the Pacific Northwest. Most of the works are photographs printed on canvas, with a few mixed media pieces.

Visitors interested in viewing live steelhead may see them at the Hiram Chittenden Locks in Seattle or Bonneville Dam Locks in Oregon.
