Highline Heritage Museum
Now through 3/2020
Every quarter, the Highline Heritage Museum hosts three community-based exhibits, showcasing special resources around the Highline area.
From now through the first quarter of 2020, the three exhibits will be:
- Local artist Paul Illian’s renditions of local places around Highline, including the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden.
- Highline High School’s Drama Club graffiti panels.
- The story of local boxer Albert (Al) Paul Hostak (January 7, 1916 – August 13, 2006). Nicknamed “the Savage Slav,” Hostak was an American middleweight boxer who twice held the National Boxing Association’s Middleweight title between 1938 and 1940. He was known as a hard puncher and had a record of 64 wins (41 knockouts), 9 losses (3 knockouts) and 11 draws. In 2003, Hostak made Ring Magazine’s list of 100 greatest punchers of all time.
- Also: Burien Arts Association will feature the litho and intaglio prints of Sheila Coppola; and Artists United will feature works by Beverly Eckley, Patricia Layden, Clare Parfitt and Debbie Thoma.
The Highline Heritage Museum is located at 819 SW 152nd Street, Burien. Visit highlinehistory.org for open hours and admission fees.
