WECU presents:

Whatcom and Bellingham residents are invited to “Eat for the Arts” at breakfast, lunch and/or dinner all day Thursday, October 13, 2016 as a way to support the creation of Sylvia Center for the Arts, a new local performing arts center being built in downtown Bellingham, while also supporting Bellingham’s diverse and vibrant downtown dining scene.


Participating restaurants will donate a percentage of their October 13 sales to the Sylvia Center for the Arts capital campaign.

Spearheaded by iDiOM Theater, the Sylvia Center project will convert the historic Cascade Laundry Building on Prospect Street into Sylvia Center for the Arts, a new, multiple-venue performing arts center designed to help meet the Whatcom County performing arts community’s need for affordable and accessible space to perform, rehearse, and teach classes.
