Saturday, October 5, 2013 – 4:30pm to 9:30pm
Meydenbauer Center Bellevue

Celebrate and support Kirkland Arts Center at this uniquely artistic gala, inspired by the distinctive style of the Bauhaus.

Kirkland Arts Center’s mission is to promote artistic mastery and public participation in the visual arts through innovative classes, contemporary exhibitions, and events. KAC offers creative arts experiences for all ages and artistic abilities – including year-round after school children’s programs in several local schools, summer camps and art classes for kids, curator and exhibition opportunities for emerging artists, as well as a scholarship program for those who can’t afford to pay.

Not only will you support Kirkland Arts Center, but by attending REDUX  you will experience a high-quality selection of local artist’s work and see first-hand what Kirkland Arts Center offers to artists and art enthusiasts alike. This event includes a live and silent auction unlike any in the region. In addition to one-of-a-kind artwork, the silent and live auctions include travel, leisure, personal services, and unique arts experiences.  In 2012, REDUX raised approximately $176,000 to support KAC’s mission to bring dynamic art experiences to the Eastside.
