Hi! I am the stock manager at the Vans in Southcenter and I have about 16 old skateboard decks, and I am looking for an art program who would want to take them for future use. They can’t be used to ride anymore, however they’re really fun to use for projects. Please let me know if you guys would be interested! Thank you!

Hello, I sent a small donation ($5) to Linda Middlebrooks about a year ago. I received a thank you card for the donation from Linda. But, I’m disappointed I have not heard anything from your organization since the card. Linda indicated that she would add my name to your mailing list, but I have heard nothing from her.

I’m happy to help make Renton a better place to live. Should I check the website for info?

Hello! I’m inquiring if a member of Allied Arts would like to address the Rotary Club of Renton at an upcoming meeting. I know some of our Rotarians are also involved with Allied Arts and we have a number of new folks who aren’t familiar with your organization. May 3rd is the first opening I have as well as May 17th and dates in June. Please let me know if you are interested – and thank you.

I live in Renton, my studio is here too. I used to work in the art department at UW. Anyway one thing I have tried or looked for was ways to work in the community I live. I recently have volunteered at a local Elementary school doing a project with second grades. And I do work part time with the city of Tukwila working with seniors. I loved my job at UW but felt a need to be in my community. I noticed this call on the artists trust web site for a 4Culture call. Kent is a partner as is Tukwila. Why not Renton?

Thanks for listening to my email

I am a painter who currently resides in the city of Renton. I have a little mural painting experience, although I am not a professional muralist. I belong to the South King County division of a religious organization known as the Baha’i Faith. Recently, a friend of mine who also belongs to the Baha’i Faith of South King County approached me about painting a mural to promote the ideas of World Peace and the Unity of Mankind. This mural would depict positive messages of spiritual empowerment, diversity, and social harmony among residents of South King County. It would also potentially have an interactive element, such as including an image of a pair of wings painted at the level of the height of an average adult, so visitors could pose in front of the mural and take selfies with the appearance of having a pair of heavenly wings. The painting of a mural this year would coincide with the bicentennial celebration of the birth of the Bab, who is one of the Founders of our religion of Baha’i Faith.

I like the idea of painting this mural, and so I have decided to reach out to local community members in the arts in Renton, to find out whether anyone is interested in assisting with this project, or is aware of any local organizations that are capable of developing and/or sponsoring new murals in the city of Renton or elsewhere in South King County. Additionally, if there are any local buildings or other structures that are suitable and available for the painting of an accessible mural with the theme of World Peace, we would like to speak to anyone who has any word about this. Our message extends to all local residents in the arts who’d like to get involved, as well as local youth who would like to learn about designing and painting murals as well.

If you know of any individuals or organizations who might help us with this, or have any ideas or suggestions to help guide this mural project idea, please reach out to me by email or contact me by phone, at (206) 854-2476. Thank you very much! I look forward to the possibility of speaking with you.

I was given your organization as a contact, since I’m trying to solve a problem that has cropped up several times as a member of the Renton City Concert Band. The City of Renton has found it difficult to provide accommodations for some of our band members that are mobility challenged. Normally, we play at IKEA Performing Arts Center which is completely accessible for both audience and performers. But sometimes we are required to perform at Carco, and during the summer we perform at both Coulon and Liberty Parks. I understand about finances and the cost of either renovation (Carco stage) or the sound stage for Coulon and Liberty Parks. But neither is handicapped accessible for performers to actually get on the stage if they can’t manage stairs. Several members have some mobility issues, but one in particular is now in a wheelchair. (He was in the army and is determined, so he crawled on the stage for our March concert that had to be held at Carco.) He won’t be able to participate much longer unless his condition stabilizes, but I’m sure there will be others over the years, even young people. ADA accessibility should not just be for the audience members, but performers also.

Thanks for any help you can give, and please feel free to contact me if you require more information.
