CPWM’s Deeply Rooted philosophy means more than just our history – we value philanthropy and encourage our employees to be actively involved in the community. One of our relationship managers, Anne Delaney, serves on the board of the Burke Museum, which completed a total transformation earlier this month. To support our local museum, we held a private viewing.
On Tuesday, October 22nd, we were honored to host our clients and partners for an exclusive night promoting the New Burke Museum. The night inside the museum was educational and beautiful, due to the exceptional venue, conversation, and company. The event began with a cocktail hour, followed by remarks from Dan Baty, our founder, and Julie Stein, the Burke Museum Executive Director. Guests were then invited to explore all four floors of the museum.
About the Burke
Located on the University of Washington campus, the Burke has served as Washington State’s Museum of Natural History and Culture for over 130 years. Their “From the Inside Out” vision for the design of the new museum places exhibit galleries side-by-side with visible collections, labs, and hands-on learning spaces. This model allows for a unique and engaging visitor experience. The museum is home to over 16 million pieces, including 1 of about 15 Tyrannosaurus rex skulls known to exist in the world and a full Baird’s beaked whale skeleton suspended in the lower lobby.
