Dear KAC Community,
The Kirkland Art Center has closed its doors in the service of public health for an indefinite time.
If you hold tickets for an upcoming event, please await communication from us in the coming days about the arrangements we’re currently making, and please be patient with us as we work out the details.
Because gathering people together to make and celebrate art is at the heart of our mission, we want our community to be a place where art lives, especially during this difficult time.
We have two requests:
1.) Please donate now towards our fundraising goal of $17,500, the amount we need to support our dedicated staff while they keep our operations going during this time and ensure that we can re-open to make art with you again soon.
Your support now will help us to bring kids back to the ballet studio, get the pottery wheels turning and the easels upright, fill the Gallery with art and live music, and so much more.
2.) Join us on Facebook and Instagram for our new #StayHomeMakeArt online art party! Follow us and stay tuned for weekly multidisciplinary at-home art projects, and post what you’re making on Facebook and Instagram (remember to make your posts public!) with the hashtag #StayHomeMakeArt. We can’t wait to see what you’re up to!
The Team at the Kirkland Art Center
KAC RUN 2020 News
A word about the KAC Run:
We know that many in our community look forward every year to the KAC 5k Run & Walk and Festival on the Green. This wonderful event gathers our community to enjoy friends, family, food, and fitness, as well as games and good music. Traditionally held on the first Saturday in June, the KAC Run has always been a great way to kick off the summer.
Of course, the event requires a considerable amount of planning and preparations that begin months before, and due to the uncertain future and unlikely prospect of gathering in large groups by June, the Kirkland Art Center has decided to postpone our 42nd annual KAC Run & Walk and Festival on the Green. We sincerely hope it will be possible to host this treasured community event in the fall, and will make announcements regarding that possibility, in the months ahead.
