PenMet Parks and the Peninsula Art League Join Forces

PenMet Parks and the Peninsula Art League announced a collaboration to enhance park, recreation, and art-related opportunities for the Gig Harbor Peninsula. 

“We recognize our growing community needs more park and recreation opportunities, including access to art,” said Ally Bujacich, Executive Director of PenMet Parks. “We are delighted to partner with Peninsula Art League to enhance the services each organization currently provides that benefit our community.”

Through this collaboration, Peninsula Art League is able to increase art-related activities and opportunities through workshops and other events at locations such as the Sehmel Homestead Park Volunteer Vern Pavilion. Peninsula Art League will provide volunteers for PenMet Parks’ art programming and the procurement of artwork for its new Community Recreation Center and other facilities.

“PenMet Parks is a valuable community asset and a wonderful steward of beautiful parks, trails, and gathering spaces,” said Colette Smith, President of Peninsula Art League. “Peninsula Art League is very pleased to collaborate with such a strong community partner to increase opportunities for our community to gather, play, and create.”

Peninsula Art League is a non-profit organization which endeavors to give back to the community with free annual activities such as its 38th Summer Art Festival, July 20-21, 2024. This  year, the event will be held at Sehmel Homestead Park. Peninsula Art League will also hold its 22nd Annual Open Juried Show at the Harbor History Museum from October 5 to November 22, 2024.

PenMet Parks exists to enhance the quality of life by providing parks and recreation opportunities for our community. The District manages nearly 650 acres of parkland in unincorporated Pierce County on the Gig Harbor Peninsula and provides hundreds of recreational programs and events every year for all ages and abilities. In 2024 PenMet Parks will celebrate 20 years of being deeply rooted and boldly growing in our community.
