Energize the Arts

Energy is one of our most valuable resources—from the literal invention of nuclear power, cutting-edge ventures in solar and wind technology, the power of the mighty Columbia, to a population filled with a contagious passion for life—the City of Kennewick and the greater Tri-Cities community are charged with energy.  The infusion of this energy into the public arts is one of the most powerful investments our community could make.  We believe the arts can...

  • Increase the quality of life of our residents
  • Build community identity and pride
  • Rediscover and preserve our history and heritage
  • Promote cultural and recreational tourism
  • Revitalize the city’s core
  • Emotionally and physically transform public spaces
  • Provide the draw for private development and investment
  • Support greening initiatives and environmental sustainability

  • Performing Art
