If you didn’t see it last week, please take a look at the King County Television short film about our community and our hopes for the barn.  Enjoy!


Big Thank You

We really appreciate the ideas and energy of the participants for the use planning session last Saturday. Together we discovered more uses for the Yellow Barn.  Great ideas!!  Thank you so much to Jeff Mandell for doing such a skillful job of leading the session. Jeff has a degree in architecture and is an effective facilitator so he rocked this work session. Thanks to Aria, Sandy, and Elizabeth for adding some new and interesting ideas and for putting some detail into the existing ideas!! Exciting to envision the project completed and bustling with creative community events!!!  

Grant from 4Culture

Duvall Foundation for the Arts applied for and obtained a grant from 4Culture in the amount of $10,000 to help defray the costs of the barn disassembly.  Thank you 4Culture for your help!!

SEPA Compliance

This week the barn project achieved compliance with the State Environmental Policy Act, or in project jargon, we are through the SEPA review process and through the SEPA appeal period. This is a big milestone for any project.

Stay tune for more information, and thank you for your support!

Barn Use Meeting, January 10, 2015 11:00am

How would you like to use the new community arts center??  Come to the Duvall Visitor and Centennial Center on Main Street in Duvall on January 10, 2015 at 11:00am for a Use Planning Session.  We need to hear your ideas!   Even though construction of the new barn is in the future, design needs to be dialed in now.

This meeting will be centered around users and uses of the future Snoqualmie Valley Community Art Center. We have invited individuals and groups from the community  to give us their input.  How would they use the facility and what needs might they have?  There are many important questions to ask in order to proceed with the interior design. Please join us if you’d like to contribute to the discussion and help chart the future of the facility!
