Northwest African American Museum

Culture

Seattle, WA

The region’s singular institution telling the African American story through art, culture, and history

EDX has an ongoing relationship with the Northwest African American Museum (NAAM), designing both temporary and permanent exhibits.

In East by Northwest, the museum wished to highlight the experiences of immigrant Ethiopians. EDX and NAAM worked with an Ethiopian community group to learn their stories and understand their evolving identity. Exhibits reflect the way the community wanted to express themselves and their culture to the museum’s visitors.

The Pitch Black exhibit chronicled the history of Black baseball in Washington State.

EDX is currently working with NAAM to refresh their permanent gallery exhibits for the museum’s 10th anniversary in 2018.
