Edmonds has evolved into a community known as a regional arts center. Visual, performing, literary, and outdoor art are evident throughout the area. Sculptures, galleries, murals, flowers, performances, festivals and arts organizations attract locals and visitors throughout the year.
To celebrate and recognize the role of arts in the community, the Edmonds Waterfront Center is hosting a four-part Zoom forum – "How Arts and Culture Shape the Identity of Edmonds" – featuring local experts as presenters.
April 28: "Performing Arts," presented by Joe McIalwain and Dave Earling. McIalwain is the executive director of the Edmonds Center for the Arts. Earling, a former Edmonds mayor, is a musician, conductor, and a longtime champion of the arts in the community.
May 12: "Literary Art," presented by David Brewster, co-owner of the Edmonds Bookshop. Brewster retired from Starbucks in 2017 after a career in books, music, and tech. He serves as president of the Edmonds Public Facilities District, which oversees Edmonds Center for the Arts. He writes the Fresh Reads column for The Beacon.
May 26: "Outdoor Art," presented by Frances Chapin, Arts and Culture manager for the city of Edmonds.
