Join ARCADE on Thursday, May 31, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. as we celebrate the release of our spring 2018 issue, ARCADE at 35: A Retrospective, at the Center for Wooden Boats Wagner Education Center (1002 Valley St, Seattle, 98109). The stunning new building, currently under construction, was designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig, and its core and shell was built by Schuchart. A $20 suggested donation at the door will bring beverages, light fare from Kaspars Catering & Special Events, musical entertainment by Reflect / Adam Pazan, your copy of ARCADE, and a warm philanthropic rush — it supports the creation of ARCADE's magazine and programs.

In addition to our usual launch festivities, we've got something extra special planned. In honor of ARCADE's 35th anniversary, we'll be unveiling our first commemorative ARCADE poster!

With a $100 donation, you'll reserve an advance copy of our limited-edition, A1-size (23.4" x 33.1") poster designed by Sean Wolcott, founder of Rationale. We'll also offer posters signed by renowned ARCADE feature editors with a $250 donation gift. Donations may be made now by check (mailed to ARCADE, 1201 Alaskan Way, Pier 56, Ste 200, Seattle, 98101), at the event, or anytime online through June 30th. You don't want to miss this opportunity to take home a piece of ARCADE history! Email [email protected] for more details.
