Arts Downtown is reaching out to update you and ask you to support the Arts in Puyallup by renewing your current membership and inviting new Puyallup Supporters to become members! A Family annual membership is only $30.00!
Arts Downtown has been very busy in 2017 and is proud of all the activities we are involved in. The 2017-18 outdoor rotating art is fantastic and if you haven't had a chance to see the new pieces and enjoy the old we invite you to take a tour, pick up a ...new map and visit the website to see what all is happening.
Currently Photographer Lydia Selk's artist reception will be - November 30, 2017 from 5:30 - 7:30 at the activity center gallery. Her work is exciting and I encourage you to stop by and enjoy her photography.
Award Winning Photographer Jim Martinson's work is on display at the 5th floor gallery at city hall and is well worth viewing.
The outdoor rotating gallery this year is exceptional. We had many more entries this year for consideration and believe that the new additions are an impressive addition to the current Gallery.
Projects ADT have completed this year have been labor intensive and exciting. The majority of the permanent sculptures were inspected and cleaned. We supported numerous community events including the Art and Wine Walk, the Fair Art Gallery, Library lectures, Arts in the Park, Artist Lecture Series, Fall Into Art, by Rainier League of Arts and Festival of Books. We also launched a new web site that we encourage all to visit. The address hasn't changed but the experience has! www.artsdowntown.org
We are excited for 2018 with lots of plans and opportunities but the only thing we seem to be missing is YOU. Our goal to enhance visual literacy and appreciation for the arts, and to encourage cultural tourism, thereby contributing to both the economy and quality of life within our community." We hope that you will consider membership and be assured that joining now will make you an active member now through 2018! The nice thing is that you can now do that on the website. As you visit the website or visit us on Facebook to view the gallery and all the events, please go to the membership option where you can join for as little as $30 for your entire family. Consider ADT membership as a Christmas gift for your family and friends, again easily purchased on the web site and a membership card will be sent to you for your gifting pleasure.
We are always proud to remind people of our Community Sponsors, Korum Automotive, DM Disposal and Evergreen Law Office, PC and our Legacy Donors: Jerry and Germaine Korum, Korum for Kids Foundation and Babette Kunkle and Family.
Please consider becoming a member and enjoy great benefits while helping to support our organization. Members are an integral part of our outdoor sculpture gallery and we are grateful for your support. Join today and experience the best that Arts Downtown has to offer.
