The Schack in Everett
"Convergence: Contemporty Mex-Xicano Art in the PNW" on display at The Schack.


Currently on display now through June 3 at The Schack in Everett is “Convergence: Contemporary Mex-Xicano Art in the PNW.” It will showcase the rich history and art that exists as a result of the Mexican migration to the Northwest.

Founded more than 42 years ago as the non-profit Arts Council of Snohomish County, the Schack Art Center opened in April 2011 and was named for John and Idamae Schack, in honor of their steadfast support of Everett's cultural institutions. In 2014, the Schack Art received the Governor's Award for Outstanding Arts Organization in the State of Washington.

Inside the Schack Art Center, you find exhibit galleries with diverse artwork from locally and internationally known professional artists, as well as emerging young talents. The main gallery also provides a first-class view into the world of glassblowing. Anytime the Schack is open, you are welcome to watch this fascinating process while admiring the latest exhibit.

The Schack is also a great place to learn and take classes on a variety of art forms. You might be surprised by the artist who is already living inside of you. Admission to the Schack is free and is open Monday through Fridays from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from Noon-5:00 p.m. The Schack is located at 2921 Hoyt Ave., Everett, 98201.
