NORTHWEST TREASURES AT EVERY TURN

At Willows, we pay tribute to the artistic expressions unique to the Pacific Northwest,

Throughout our gardens and public spaces, you’ll find artwork by the most highly skilled Northwest Coast Native American artists. This ancient art form integrates spiritual, animal and human reverence for the natural world. Their works often come from the stories of Native American cultures and express the vision and technical virtuosity of the artists.

Art of Bill Reid at Seattle area resort.

BILL REID

Widely credited with having restored North Coast Native art to its present high level, Bill Reid is one of the outstanding artists of the twentieth century. His most significant monumental work, The Spirit of Haida Gwaii, is featured with a large photo in the lobby. In our gardens, you’ll find two large bronze heads cast from the original work. Photos in the guest rooms reveal textural details of this work, including the hair of Bear Mother, the tail of the Beaver, and the cape of the Conscript. Other outstanding pieces of Reid’s work are located in the lobby.
