To further arts engagement for youth and adults within the Seattle and the Northwest, Chihuly Garden and Glass has partnered with several local non-profit organizations including Pratt Fine Arts Center, Pilchuck Glass School, ArtsFund, as well as the Seattle Public Schools.
For 35 years, Pratt has provided the people of Seattle and the Northwest the opportunity to envision and create their own art. Pratt’s staff teaches more than 3,500 students and serves more than 500 working artists each year.
Co-founded by Dale Chihuly in 1971, Pilchuck Glass School is an international glass education facility located in Stanwood, Washington in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
ArtsFund donors support nearly 70 local arts groups, large and small, so they can provide stimulating and enlightening arts for the community. ArtsFund’s grants, capacity building, and other services make arts groups stronger so they can serve this region to make it a better place to live.
Seattle Public Schools is the largest K-12 school system in Washington State, serving more than 47,000 students in 91 schools.
