Puget Sound Arts and Cultural Institutions United
For Tsunami Relief
Local attractions will donate a portion of admissions gate on January 28th to the American Red Cross
SEATTLE, WA - On Friday, January 28, 2005, several local arts and cultural attractions will donate at least five percent of their admissions gate proceeds to the American Red Cross in a special Tsunami Relief Day. The devastating disaster in South Asia has affected the world deeply, and the arts and cultural institutions in the Puget Sound area are uniting to aid the tsunami victims. In early January, a special coalition was formed, the Puget Sound Arts & Cultural Institutions United For Tsunami Relief. This ambitious project is coordinated jointly by the Market the Arts Task Force and the Puget Sound Attractions Council.
The Tsunami Relief Day participants are: Argosy Cruises, Bellevue Arts Museum, Capitol Hill Arts Center, Frye Art Museum, Henry Art Gallery, The Museum of Flight, Museum of History and Industry, Pacific Science Center, Seattle Academy of Fine Art, Seattle Aquarium Society, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Repertory Theatre, SecondStory Repertory Theatre, Theater Schmeater, Underground Tour, Wing Luke Asian Museum and Woodland Park Zoo. Patrons are encouraged to contact the specific organization directly for more details, directions and hours of operation.
All admission-charging institutions will donate at least five percent to the American Red Cross, however, institutions that do not charge admission will participate by making a donation box available, encouraging their patrons to donate, and earmarking all proceeds for the tsunami relief.
The Wing Luke Asian Museum is very proud to be a part of this special event benefiting the humanitarian efforts for the victims of the tsunami tragedy.

About the Wing Luke Asian Museum:
The Wing Luke Asian Museum is located at the heart of Seattle's historic Chinatown/ International District at 407-7th Avenue South. Founded in 1967, the Museum has a regional and national significance, and celebrates its namesake of the first Asian American elected to public office in the Pacific Northwest, Wing Luke. The Wing Luke Asian Museum- an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the 1995 recipient of the National Award for Museum Service, and the 2004 recipient of the City of Seattle Distinguished Human Rights Award- is dedicated to engaging the public in exploring issues related to the culture, art and history of Asian Pacific Americans.
A museum like no other- The Wing Luke Asian Museum in Seattle, Washington is the only pan-Asian Pacific American museum in the country. It is nationally recognized for its award-winning exhibitions and community-based model of exhibition and program development. The Museum has embarked upon a remarkable journey to transform a building and a community by raising $24.7 million to rehabilitate the Kong Yick Building as its new permanent home in the heart of Seattle's Chinatown-International District.

"Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and
social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest
must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world's estimation, and
publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathy with despised and
persecuted ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences." -S.B. Anthony
