One of Washington’s most outstanding arts organizations can be found right in the midst of downtown Everett.
You might, understandably, be a little thrown off by the name. It’s Schack Art Center, named for generous local benefactors John and Idamae Schack – not shack.
The nearly 20,000 square foot center has plenty to engage you; visitors can view, appreciate and even make art.
Entrance and self-guided gallery tours – often including the chance to see professional glass blowers at work in the hot shop – are admission-free for all ages. If you’d rather have a guide, call ahead to reserve; for a small fee. During the tour, you’ll learn more about the center’s history and the current exhibit, and get a behind-the-scenes look into some of the other studio spaces where artists might be printmaking, painting or firing ceramics in the kiln.
