The Sequim City Arts Advisory Commission is launching a special fundraising project to purchase a three piece leaded glass window to potentially be installed at the Guy Cole Convention Center.
The window was created by local artist Millie Harrell. It measures 6 feet tall by 8 feet wide and represents a local elk among fields, hills, and trees.
The Sequim City Council gave the Commission the approval to launch the fundraising project at the July 11, 2016 Council Meeting. The Commission must raise $29,000 by August 19, 2016 to cover the cost of the art, taxes, moving, and basic installation fees. The deadline is driven by the construction schedule to complete renovations to the Guy Cole Center and reopen it for rental in the spring of 2017.
Community members or businesses that pledge $1,000 or more will be recognized on a plaque to be placed next to the window at the Guy Cole Center. All contributors will be acknowledged with a commemorative photo card.
Pledge cards for support of the project can be picked up at the Concierge Desk in the lobby of the Sequim Civic Center located at 152 West Cedar Street, or on the City website www.sequimwa.gov. No monies will be collected until after the August 19 deadline. Donors will then be contacted and all monies will need to be received by August 31. If the necessary funds to purchase the art are not raised, all pledges will become void. If the revenue exceeds the amount needed, any remaining funds will be set aside in a dedicated account for the purchase of future public art.
