Arts Night 2016: A Home Run!

On Tuesday, June 28, art lovers and baseball fans alike gathered at Safeco Field to take in arts performances around the stadium and watch the Seattle Mariners defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates. ArtsFund’s 4th Annual Arts Night at Safeco Field featured artists, arts performances, and arts supporters from throughout the region. This partnership with the Seattle Mariners provides visibility for our regional non-profit arts organizations and a celebratory evening for the community.

Guests were greeted with live pre-game entertainment at the gates from Jet City Improv, Music Center of the Northwest’s Centerpiece Jazz Band, and Seattle JazzED’s All Star Girls Combo.
