Let’s raise the money and move forward on VAA project | Letter to the Editor

Having lived here since Vashon Allied Arts operated out of what’s now the Heritage Museum, I want to add my voice to those supporting VAA’s forward-looking plan.

I feel that, while never perfect, the plan for the new VAA Performing Arts Center will serve the Island extremely well for a century — at least.

Having just visited the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and seen how well their stunning new glass-box addition harmonizes with the old “palace,” I’m sure that Center will vibrate with new and old reflections once the new building rises.

I appreciate the Beachcomber’s attempts to balance coverage of this issue. Now, let’s raise the rest of the money and raise the new barn!
