Exhibition Hall History
The Seattle Center Exhibition Hall was originally built for the 1962 World’s Fair and housed the “world of art” exhibit. This exhibit included art from sixty-one museums around the world by such artists as Michelangelo, Titian, Renoir, Rembrandt, and Homer. Art of the Ancient East and Northwest Coast Indian Art were also on display. The Pacific Northwest Ballet's Phelps Center was built in unused airspace of the Seattle Center's Exhibition Hall in 1993 to house education and rehearsal facilities as well as offices for PNB.
