!ATTENTION!: Artists at Work

In the face of COVID-19, Arts and community aren’t cancelled. In fact, we believe that they are the most powerful tools at our disposal. That is why Open Space is teaming up with fellow Vashon Island organizations to create public art by funding local artists. A donation to Open Space at this time will fund artists to create public art and help keep our team together and working on this program to benefit the island, our community, and its artists.

If you are able to donate, we have included levels below to make it easier to visualize the power of your gift. However, a donation of any size will be used to grow this project to include as many artists as possible in a variety of ways.

$25 – A blank panel for an artist to paint
$50 – Installation of a panel
$100 – Employ artisans and carpenters to create a mural structure to attach panels
$250 – Sponsor half of a completed panel
$500 – Sponsor a full panel on our first mural

  • Terrific venue for all sorts of artistic performances and experiences.  From the local non profit auction to burlesque, The Open Space always has something going on.  It's also where you'll find UMO circus school, a great place for kids and adults to explore circus skills from parkour to aerial.

  • Being in Bruce’s Black Box at the Lady Rizo preview party, I felt the love. It was lovely to be in this new space that felt dedicated to the love of art; a space lovingly brought about by a community that loves artists and the value they bring to our lives. I hope many artists fall in love with the new Open Space and I look forward to loving the imaginative work and the creative spirit they will bring to it. Taking part in this love exchange is a great way to nourish ourselves when we begin to feel overwhelmed by the challenges of the wider world. Choose art and feel the love!

  • I support Open Space because it serves EVERYONE on Vashon Island, but even more than that because it brings art to the island I might not otherwise see. Since Open Space opened its doors I’ve seen a caliber of performance the island has not produced before. What’s even better? They took a space that had been an island landmark and turned it into a magnificent art venue instead of tearing it down and building again. They found a way to work with what they discovered and I love them for it!
