Thank You from MICA!

Mercer Island Center for the Arts thanks the voters of Mercer Island for thoughtfully evaluating the parks petition and for concluding that our parks are for everyone. Islanders sent a clear message that our community will benefit from opportunities for the arts and parks to work together and enhance overall experience. 

Over the past three years, MICA has made great progress in our building design, strategic plan and operational plan. We continue to focus on completing the required and currently in progress SEPA review including a viable solution for parking so we can finalize the lease with the City and kick start our capital campaign in earnest.

Ongoing community feedback is very important to us and MICA will have booths at future Farmers Markets, Mostly Music in the Park concerts, and at Summer Celebration to update Islanders on progress and to answer any questions from the community. Islanders can also find information on our website at, by stopping by our downtown office or by emailing
