‘Hilltop Artists Day’ to Celebrate Tacoma’s Art and Community
Museum of Glass, 1801 Dock St., Tacoma, WA 98402

Hilltop Artists is pleased to announce Hilltop Artists Day at Museum of Glass on Sunday, April 23 from 1-5 p.m. Thanks to the generosity of Dale and Leslie Chihuly, the event is free for all youth ages 18 and under. Proceeds from adult admissions will be donated directly to Hilltop Artists. Dale Chihuly cofounded Hilltop Artists in 1994 and has remained a steadfast supporter ever since. Hilltop Artists’ tuition-free programs provide youth, ages 12-20, with glass art instruction and adult mentors focused on increasing students’ academic and interpersonal success. The ongoing partnership among Hilltop Artists, Chihuly Studio, and the Museum of Glass serves to strengthen the glass community and exemplifies a remarkable collaboration in the arts on behalf of our youth. With the theme “A Color Beyond Imagination,” the event commemorates the incredible past 10 years of Hilltop Artists, along with launching the organization into its next chapter.
The event also features family-friendly activities, local entertainment, Hot Shop demonstrations by students and alumni, and much more. Info:

When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the "girls," what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you're Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you've ever done. You "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you're truly living.
