Kirkland Arts Center was founded as the Creative Arts League in 1962 by artists and citizens interested in providing local opportunities in the arts and preserving a Kirkland landmark, the Peter Kirk Building. For over 50 years, KAC has owned and maintained this historic structure and transformed it into an exhibition gallery, community arts studios, and classrooms serving students of all ages and skill levels.
Kirkland Arts Center’s mission is to unleash the power of art to ignite individual growth and self-expression, build community spirit, and cultivate cultural vibrancy.
Thank you for your interest in joining our board!
Joining our board is an invaluable way to support KAC thrive and grow and give back to the community by providing leadership and guidance. It’s also a great way to connect with the greater arts community of the Eastside and meet like-minded folks. Lastly, it’s an opportunity to learn new skills in fundraising, the arts and non-profit finance & management.
