    Free admission. Free parking. Free wi-fi. Yummy cafe. I think this will be my new "office" when I'm between clients in the Capitol Hill/downtown/First Hill area. Makes me happy.

    Frye showcases mainly German painting and sculpture from the 19th century to the present. See breathtaking pastoral landscapes from Fritz Baer and Francois Cachoud, or attend one of the many lectures.

    Buster Simpson, publicartist/environmentalist exhibit, worth time to go out of your way to see & it's free, so is parking across the street!

    Frye Art Museum is always free of charged, was opened as a museum by founders who had that goal in mind. Always worth a visit, I try to visit a couple times a year.

    Go to the Frye and count how many paintings are on the walls. If you exceed 125, go have a glass of wine at the Cafe.

    Check out the German Romantic paintings. Not very romantic though.

    Don't miss the great soups at the cafe. But careful, they come out blisteringly hot.
