Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance Projects

The projects that the Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance supports and fosters are wide and varied, yet they have one over-arching purpose: the furtherance of art in Washougal.

From static installations to promoting youth involvement in the arts to our flagship annual Washougal Art Festival, there are numerous projects to get involved in and enjoy

Current Project - Disappearing Reader

The Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance is proud to announce our next project: a Disappearing Reader Sculpture for the new Washougal Community Library. The dramatic sculpture will be created at scale appropriate for our location by renowned artist Julian Voss-Andreae, a German artist based in Portland. It is designed from metal plates to look solid from some angles and to “disappear” as the viewer walks around to view the sculpture from different angles.

Please follow WACA on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date on this project. And, of course, if you would like to contribute to bringing this exciting art work to our community, please click here to donate or contact us about becoming a sponsor. 

The flagship project of The Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance, the annual Washougal Art Festival strives connect the artists in our community with community members who love art. Held in-person or virtually, the Washougal Art Festival showcases the talented artists in our own community and brings art lovers of all kinds together. 

Washougal Art Festival

The Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance proudly supports the Washougal Youth Arts Month. Held every March, the WYAM encourages youth involvement in the Arts by inviting Washougal students K-12 to photograph the beauty of Washougal its rivers, its people, its places and things that are uniquely Washougal. Digital camera or smartphone, the important thing is that you get involved. 

Washougal Youth Art Month

The heart of the Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance, we work together with artists, local businesses, local and state governments as well as art supporters in the area to bring more art installations to the city of Washougal. From Seaman the Newfoundland to our Golden Back Heron to the Princess White Wing Mural, our WACA Installations aim to bring more art into the town we love.
