There may be some exceptions to the age distribution, but that is the general intention.

Call for on-site reviewers Thu, 26 Mar 2015 21:09:21 +0000 4Culture
Application deadline: 4/6/2015

The On-Site Review program is part of how 4Culture evaluates the many arts and heritage organizations who receive Sustained Support funding. All of these organizations (choruses, theaters, art galleries, historical societies, orchestras, dance troupes, film collectives, literary groups, museums, service organizations, and more) tell us which of their events best reflect who they are—which programs best embody the quality of their efforts and the essence of their mission. Then 4Culture sends On-Site Reviewers to these events, who write up brief but substantial reviews, which are later given to the panels that consider the Sustained Support recipients’ next application. The goal of these reviews is to give the panelists a patron’s-eye-view of the organization, to flesh out their understanding of what these organizations actually do.

These reviews are not thumbs-up/thumbs-down critiques—they’re meant to be a description of a well-informed patron’s experience. They must be concise (the panelists will be reading more than 600 of them!), but they must also provide concrete details of the event and some balanced discussion of the quality and substance of the event.

If you can write such reviews, and if you have a demonstrable background in one or more disciplines (for example, if you are an artist or an administrator in an arts or heritage organization), please apply to become an On-Site Reviewer by 5 PM on Monday, April 6, 2015.

For more information about how to apply, go to and click on the tab for On-Site Reviews. There you will find the ‘Call for On-Site Reviewers’, which you can download. You will also find the 2015 Review Form, which is what Reviewers fill out, and a link to On-Site Reviews on 4Culture’s blog, which will give you some samples of the kind of review we seek.

Questions about the program or about applying? Call Bret Fetzer at 206-205-8592 or e-mail him (preferred) at

Call to artists – Astronauts on the Town Tue, 24 Mar 2015 20:52:21 +0000

Museum of Flight
Application deadline: 4/17/2015, 5 PM

“Astronaut” is the mascot of the Museum of Flight, created back in 2012 as part of the Museum’s “Now Everyone Can Be An Astronaut” ad campaign. A vivacious, curious character in a spacesuit, Astronaut has become an established feature in the Museum’s social media and advertising.

The Museum of Flight is launching an Astronauts on the Town campaign this summer, featuring 25 astronaut statues that will be placed in various public spaces from Friday, June 12 to Friday, September 11, 2015. Most host locations will be within King County and will be indoors and easily accessed by the public. Some of the host locations include: Washington State Convention Center, Northgate Mall, Pike Place Market, Ballard Locks, etc.

Artists are being invited to submit designs to the Museum of Flight. If your design is chosen, you will be provided with the statue, which is composed of cast resin mixed with fiberglass and is adhered to a wood base (dimensions: 33″ long, 31″ wide, 75″ tall, 80 pounds). These statues will be made available to artists to pick up during the last week of April, who will then have about six weeks to complete their design on the statue. Completely decorated astronaut statues are due back at the Museum of Flight on June 10. For more information, click here.

Shrek is family-oriented in more ways than one Thu, 19 Mar 2015 18:56:09 +0000 HEAVIER-Shrek“Once upon a time, there was a little Ogre named Shrek…” So begins Shrek The Musical, the musical stage version of the Oscar-winning film presented by Heavier Than Air Family Theatre. In this adventure, everyone’s favorite ogre finds himself on a life-changing journey with a wisecracking Donkey and feisty princess. Shrek’s travels take him from swamps to castles, encountering everything from a short tempered royal to a cookie with attitude, a band of fairytale misfits, and a fiercely flirtatious Dragon. Along the way he learns that different can be wonderful and friendships are kindled.

As Shrek, the story’s unlikely hero, actor Patrick Roduin’s return to the stage has also been an interesting journey. Over 20 years ago he planned to pursue a career in theatre but, as often happens, life came along and set him on a different course. Patrick currently works as a drafter for a local cabinet company.

It wasn’t until his son enrolled in Heavier Than Air’s musical theatre camp a few years ago that Patrick’s passion for the stage was reignited. The rest, as they say, is history! The entire Roduin clan now enjoys performing with Heavier Than Air Family Theatre, and Patrick now works as a cabinetmaker by day, and an ogre at night.

As a matter of fact, ‘family’ is what this theatre company is all about. Princess Fiona (Megan Black) helps direct teens in the summer camp and her children have also performed in several Heavier Than Air main stage productions. Gingy (Windy Foster) and Pinocchio (Madison Foster) are a mother-daughter team that came to the playhouse after seeing an audition notice for Annie in 2001; they were cast and have since been part of the company along with three other members in their family. Peter Pan (Lenee’ Lameyer) attended camp as a child and has made her way back to the theatre with her mother, who is a costumer.

And of course, Shrek The Musical is the perfect show for entire families to attend. It premieres on the main campus of Green River College at 7 PM, Friday, March 27.   Performances continue Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday through April 4. For ticket information call 253-833-9111 ext. 2400 or visit
