Winter Solstice: Selections by Leslie Pope

"Astronomers measure North American winters from the winter solstice on December 21 to the vernal equinox the following March 20. This averages 91.3125 days, or a little more than 13 weeks.

Here are 13 artworks – one for each week of winter – from Washington's State Art Collection to bring a smile during dark winter days, warm our imaginations during cold temperatures, and help us see the beauty in this winter season."

–Curated by Leslie Pope, ArtsWA Executive Assistant (December 2017).
