|Historical Notes||"The Fine Arts Pavilion contains five main galleries. The opening shows, in order of viewing, are Art Since 1950, American; Masterpieces of Art; Art of the Ancient East; Art Since 1950, International, and Northwest Coast Indian Art … The Fine Arts Pavilion contains 40-thousand square feet of unobstructed floor space. The vaulted ceiling rises 40 feet and the illumination is exceptionally good. The main galleries are divided by fireproof partitions." (Century 21 Exposition. (1962). Official Guide Book, Seattle World's Fair 1962. Seattle: Acme Publications. p. 88-89)|
After the fair, the 800-seat Playhouse became the Seattle Repertory Theatre; in the mid-1980's, the name was again changed to the Intiman Playhouse.
