Review for Gage Academy of Art, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was Chair of the Board of Gage for 6 years and helped shepherd the organization through its move from the University Heights building to its present location at St. Mark's and its name change from Seattle Academy of Art to Gage Academy. Both of these monumental undertakings were solved with efficiency and grace. I have never worked with more committed founders whom I respect individually for their dedication to the art and community. From the Board to the Staff to the Students to the Donors, Gage Academy fosters an atmosphere of shared creative learning. I would urge anyone reading these reviews to become involved: take a class, visit an on site gallery, donate or join the board. Your life will be enriched.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

growing its youth program. They have now opened Teen Art Studios South in the Rainier Valley.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase its visibility in the community and add board members.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the devotion to art and my relationships with the everyone I've met through the organization

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful and dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Become the west coast hub for art training and education.

Ways to make it better...

I'd had more time to work with the organization

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

space constraints because its outgrowing its capacity and attracting good board members.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
