Boeing Gives $30,000 to Support Schack Exhibits
Schack Art Center is pleased to announce a $30,000 grant award from The Boeing Company for several of its 2013 exhibits.
This award will help support the Schack Art Center's upcoming exhibit schedule, including the Whidbey Island Surface Design group show in March, the biannual favorite Art of the Garden in July, and Fall Glass Exhibit featuring Pilchuck Glass School's 2012 Emerging Artists in Residence. Nearly 50,000 people visit the Schack's exhibit gallery every year, which is admission free to the public.
"We are thrilled that The Boeing Company continues to recognize the important role of visual arts in our community and are thankful for their generous support," said Judy Tuohy, Executive Director, Schack Art Center.
The grant to Schack Art Center was made possible through Boeing's Global Corporate Citizenship (GCC) organization. GCC refers to the work that Boeing does in its diverse communities, both as a company and individuals. The economic well-being of the Pacific Northwest region and the vibrancy of its communities are foundational components to the region's long-term health and viability. Boeing plays a significant role in ensuring the Northwest Region provides for strong, vibrant communities through its support of health and human services, arts and culture, education, environment and civic needs. Last year, Boeing, its employees and retirees contributed $49 million to organizations in Northwest communities where employees and retirees live and work.
