Rep. Jayapal attends opening of renovated Seattle Asian Art Museum

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA7) attended the opening of renovated Seattle Asian Art Museum Feb. 8. The ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the official opening of the renovated and expanded museum building was attended, among others, by SAM’s director Amada Cruz  and other officials and a representative from non-profit Junior Asha, the youth wing of Asha for Education. The teens from Junior Asha cut the ribbon. Jayapal also briefly spoke at the event. The $56-million renovation project, which took two years to complete, will help the museum showcase more of its collection of art from India and other Asian countries.
