Welcome to the Allied Arts of Renton Website
Our organization has been fostering art and culture in our community for over fifty years – sponsoring events like the Chalk Art Contest, the Fall Family Concert, and volunteering at and supporting the Annual Art Show. We are also active in following the City of Renton’s Cultural Master Plan.
The chalk art contest during Renton River Days attracts artists of all ages and all abilities who come to the tennis courts at Liberty Park in Renton to participate. The creativity and chalk dust is abundant!
Our members also volunteer at the Renton Annual Art Show during Renton River Days. We are involved in registering the artists, assisting the judging, and helping out at the preview party. There is always an enthusiastic crowd to see the wonderful art work of local artists, as well as professional artists from as far north as Snohomish County and as far south as Pierce County.
At our annual Fall Family Concert in October, the Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra comes to the IKEA Performing Arts Center. We are proud to be able to bring this high quality musical entertainment to Renton at affordable prices. We are helped in this endeavor by the support of our partner, the 4Culture Organization.
The Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra is a group of community members who share a passion for music. As part of their outreach program, student musicians are invited to join in several rehearsals and an onstage performance with an afternoon of delightful classical music. Allied Arts’ mission is to keep the ticket prices low so the entire family may attend. Thanks to a partnership with the Renton School District, Renton Community Foundation and Renton Municipal Arts Commission, the board has been able to provide this event at discounted prices. Nowhere will one find a concert of this caliber for such a reasonable rate. Each year audience members enjoy the professional, polished performance of the musicians.
To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we developed an arts scholarship program called Arts Alive for Youth for talented young people in Renton. The application can be found here.
