Coupeville art school shows off kinetic sculpture
February 12, 2013 · Updated 2:40 PM
Celebrate the unveiling of the Pacific NorthWest Art School’s new kinetic sculpture at the school’s annual meeting set for 4:30 p.m. Friday, March 1. The school is located at 15 NW Birch St., Coupeville.
Historically, the annual membership night is a night packed full of food, friendship and honoring those who volunteer, as well as letting the community know about the school and what it has to offer. This year, the school is offering its annual membership night earlier in the evening to allow everyone who wants to attend the Mussel Mingle time and opportunity to attend both events.
This year, as a way to publicly honor those who support the school, a kinetic sculpture designed and built by local artist Jonathan Ward of Winfield Designs will be revealed. It consists of gears and cogs that all work and move together, much like the school’s volunteers, staff, students, board members and supporters do. The base of the sculpture will honor the school’s founders.
Every year as patrons “Fund Our Programs” on a certain level, they will receive their name on a gear or cog. The sculpture will “grow” as support grows.
The community is invited to attend this free event. There will be a chance to meet volunteers, other members, board members and staff of the Coupeville Arts Center and The Pacific NorthWest Art School.
