History of Rowing in Seattle: The Return of the Husky Challenger

This event has passed.

In honor of the upcoming exhibit, Pulling Together: A Brief History of Rowing in Seattle, the University of Washington Men’s Rowing team will row the iconic shell from the historic Conibear Shellhouse to MOHAI, where it will then be displayed in the Faye G. Allen Grand Atrium.

In its return to Lake Union, the UW crew—all Washington State locals, outfitted in uniforms reflecting the attire of the 1936 crew—will leave the University of Washington at 11:15 am and arrive at Lake Union Park at approximately 11:45 am. The shell will then be carried to the front entrance of MOHAI for a short presentation.  From there, the shell will be carried inside the museum and become the centerpiece of Pulling Together, set to open November 24.

Pulling Together: A Brief History of Rowing in Seattle is organized by MOHAI in collaboration with: University of Washington | ASUW Shellhouse | University of Washington Libraries, Special Collections | University of Washington Rowing | Northwest Maritime Center | Pocock Rowing Foundation | Tacoma-Pierce County Sports Museum | Northwest Maritime Center
