Peninsula Art League (“PAL”) and Peninsula Metropolitan Park District (“PenMet Parks”) have joined forces to bring exciting new art activities and education to the Gig Harbor Peninsula and beyond. As part of this collaborative effort, PAL is procuring artwork for public display at PenMet Parks' facilities. The first of these exhibits will be at PenMet Parks' new Administrative Headquarters at 2416 14th Ave NW, Gig Harbor, WA (the “Venue”). The Venue is next to PenMet Parks' fabulous new Recreation Center (“RC”) set to open in late 2024. The RC is a 58,000SF facility for indoor sports, walking, and community gathering spaces, and is accessible from the Cushman Trail.

The Venue is a beautiful new building with a bank of windows opening to the RC and event lawn. The Venue has large open wall spaces to exhibit your artwork. The PenMet Board of Park Commissioners holds its public board meetings at the Venue on the first and third Tuesdays of every month, public service groups meet at the Venue monthly, and with the opening of the RC, the Venue will become a hub of public activity and gathering space for visitors to the RC.
