Coming Soon…it’s Spring Bloom!
Warmer months are just around the corner and we hope you’ll join us for our annual tradition, Spring Bloom. As part of this year’s theme – “A Thousand Flowers,” which is a nod to Dale Chihuly’s Mille Fiori that means a thousand flowers in Italian – the Garden team planted 17,500 new bulbs. Did you know highly successful bulb shows from past years are left in the ground to naturalize, set seed, and come back year after year? This means more than 30,000 bulbs and more than 50 flower varieties will bloom in our Garden from March through May! You can also visit Collections Café to try their floral-inspired cocktails and new spring menu, or pick up a gift for the gardener in your life at the Bookstore. Stay tuned for special garden-related programs throughout the season. More details will be available on the Event page of our website.
New Community Give-Back Partner
Throughout the year, Team Members in the Boosktore raise funds for a local arts nonprofit through a Community Give-Back program. Donating is easy – everyone making a purchase has the opportunity to round their total up to the nearest dollar and those funds are given to our current partner. This year, Team Members will help to raise funds for Path with Art, a Seattle-based non-profit. Through the power of creativity, Path with Art transforms the lives of people recovering from homelessness, addiction, and other trauma, helping them build a bridge to the community and a path to stability. To learn more about their important work, you can find their website.
Thanks to the Bookstore team, we donated more than $40,000 to Museum of Glass’ Hot Shop Heroes program. Pennies truly do make a difference!
Join Us For ‘It All Starts With Art’
On February 29, Chihuly Garden and Glass is hosting a community arts celebration in the Glasshouse, which is also a day of giving. Chihuly Garden and Glass will donate our proceeds from ticket sales to help fund creative opportunities, scholarships, and programs for youth and emerging artists in the Pacific Northwest.
Artists from around the region will host demonstrations, performances and more. It is a great opportunity to learn more about and feel connected to our city’s incredible arts community.
If you or someone you know would like to help us fund more youth arts programs and scholarships in our region, tickets can be purchased through the event page found.
