The Pacific Northwest has finally come out of the cloudy shadows. Along with the heat and sun comes an exciting summer for Mercer Island Center for the Arts. The MICA team always looks forward to connecting with the community during the many summer activities around the island.
Once again, MICA is a partner/non-profit sponsor for many of the eagerly awaited on-island events including Mercer Island Farmers Market, Summer Celebration, Art Uncorked, Mostly Music in the Park, and Russian Chamber Music Foundation of Seattle’s performance in Luther Burbank Park.
