Everyone belongs here! In 1966, Vashon Center for the Arts officially became a nonprofit following a rich background of organized art shows dating back to the Island’s founding “Chautauquas.” These assemblies forever shaped a powerful culture of art, music, and dance on Vashon. Since that time, decades have quickly passed, and our performance calendar, classroom curriculum, and gallery offerings have continued to evolve with the times while relying on the cherished financial support of our members.
