Music Vera Breaks Ground
Come to the Seattle Center today at 4:30 pm to see the Vera Project finally break ground on their new venue at the former Snoqualmie Room!
Today, Mallett, Inc will begin the first stages of construction, which is expected to take about four months. In that time, the now 6,500-square-foot space will be transformed into a 9,000-square-foot venue that will include a 300-plus capacity space for live shows, multipurpose rooms for workshops and classes, an art gallery, a screen-printing and art studio, and a recording studio.

More information about the venue, floorplans and a virtual walk-through tour are available at www.vivavera.com.
Everyone is welcome to attend the ceremony, and if you’ve yet to slip a little extra cash their way there’s no better time than now. Vera’s raised more than half of the $1.5 million ($1,087,019 to date), but they still have a ways to go. If you’re unable to make it to the Seattle Center today, online donations can still be made at www.vivavera.com, or by sending a check to Viva Vera, 1122 E Pike St No. 849, Seattle WA 98122.
