KIRKUS REVIEW

Devised largely for classroom usage, this describes Seattle and the various types of art it offers, with suggestions for study programs. The Bogue plan for Seattle's beautification in 1911 and why it fell through; what should be done for city improvement; industrial design, and what is being contributed by designers in many fields; Indian arts, and folk arts (whether weaving, toys, sculpture); the Seattle art museum with photographic reproductions and prose descriptions of what is to be seen; famous collections on exhibit -- largely orientatia; native architecture... For schools, colleges and libraries within the area. For reference shelves on city planning.
