The Center Art Foundation
The Center Art Foundation* is committed to building a vibrant community by connecting people to art in meaningful ways. Chihuly Garden and Glass established the Center Art Foundation in 2018 to enrich life in the Pacific Northwest by further supporting the arts.
This commitment to our community is fulfilled through financial and in-kind support of arts organizations, youth arts programs, school arts education and scholarships for individual artists to empower the next generation of artists.
