Au musée

One of Seattle's better old curiosity shops--The MOHAI, for Museum of History and Industry--re-opens soon in a new location, after its old one was taken for an expansion of a floating bridge across Lake Washington;

The new Highway 520 bridge project prompted the need to move, and the compensation the museum received from the state covered about half the cost of creating the new museum.
Most of the rest of the funding is coming from a $40 million capital campaign still about $3.5 million short of its goal.
....Among key players in the project are LMN Architects, Sellen Construction, Pacific Studio and Weatherhead Experience Design Group.
Gasp!  Private funding for the 'arts'...don't let this idea get too wide a circulation.
