Current and Upcoming Events

The City of Sequim City Arts Advisory Commission is partnering with the Dungeness River Audubon Center to host the 2018 Audubon Society’s Best Avian Photography. The photographs will be on exhibit at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 West Cedar Street, April 5th through April 24th.  Civic Center hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The winning photographers and their stunning photographs were selected from more than 8,000 entries submitted by photographers from all 50 states, Washington D.C., and 10 Canadian provinces.  This year’s exquisite photographs celebrate the splendor of many bird species protected under the 100-year-old Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
