Vera Project Update

posted by on December 25 at 11:30 AM

Hey, Merry Christmas Seattle! You get a new all-ages venue!


The Vera Project is less than $600,000 away from meeting their million and a half dollar goal (and an auction planned for January will certainly help decrease that number), and the construction on the new space is, according to Program Director Melissa Quayle, coming along wonderfully.

Through the drywall dust you can see the new Vera taking shape in Seattle Center’s Snoqualmie Room. The steel framing is in and the walls are up. The silkscreen studio is a studio, the showroom has a sound booth and a stage is in the works.

Here’s what it looks like right now. Both shots were taken by the gifted and handsome Curt Doughty.



Opening weekend is scheduled for February 23rd and 24th, but they’re not announcing who’s playing just yet—we’ll have to wait until after the New Year for that. For now, despite the new space being unfinished, they still need volunteers to help ‘em out as things progress, says Quayle.

We need people to: help out with our auction, carry and move sound, silkscreen and office equipment, and decorate and settle into our new venue. Our next volunteer orientation is on January 11th, at our temporary HQ 766 Thomas at 6pm. We would love to see you!

Oh my, we just got back home from church and my mind is 'birthing' with optimism.

This Vera Project sounds wonderful, although I'm mainly attracted to the top photo in the post. Aesthetically, it does so much for me: the half-finished state of order is a personal liking, the colors are warm with a slight coolness, the exposed studs and HVAC(?) ducts, and the topper - a hint at 'Las Mininas' by Veasquez in the opening doorway near the back of the room.

Thank you Stranger. Now, back to family fun. Merry Christmas!
