Public Art Tile Project

Throughout the Centennial Celebration year, Sequim residents and visitors have a chance to participate in a public art project by painting a commemorative tile. Aglazing Arts Studio of Port Angeles is helping to make this possible.  The cost is $10 to paint a 6” X 6” tile.  The studio is also available to paint a tile for you for $15. This is a great opportunity for businesses who want their logo on a tile! The studio will glaze and fire the tile which will be incorporated into a public art display at the completion of the Centennial year.   The goal is to have at least 1,000 tiles painted throughout the Centennial Celebration year.  Everyone is encouraged to participate and to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime community art project.

If you would like this project to come to your group or organization, please contact Karen Kuznek-Reese at or 360-681-3428.

Milk Can Project
At one time, the Sequim-Dungeness Valley was the oldest dairy center in the state of Washington with several hundred dairy farms. At the industry peak it was believed there were 9,000 cows within a five-mile radius of Sequim. In 1917 the industry was so strong the Washington State Dairymen's Association held its convention in Sequim. In the 1960's, the Town of Sequim's letterhead was "Town of Sequim - Dairy Center of the Northwest." By 1977, the industry was disappearing and the 9,000 cows had been reduced by two-thirds.

The Sequim Centennial is a great time to reflect on days gone by. Several milk cans have been painted to reflect the artists' vision of Sequim - Past, Present and Future. These milk cans are part of a silent auction to help support the Centennial events. The cans are available for viewing at various businesses throughout the city.
