Gathering Support for the Artist-In-Residence Program
Supported by a grant from the Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence Foundation, the Washington Foundation started in Artist in Residence Program in Spring, 2008. The artists who participate in the program will reflect Dr. Washington's strong belief in the healing and transcending value of art in the human spirit. They will live and work in the Washington house and studio, bringing new artwork to life and interacting with the Seattle community. This programming will include mentoring, lectures, open studios and workshops which will serve to inspire and add meaning to our lives.
