While many art galleries and public service buildings are closed temporarily in response to the coronavirus pandemic, there are many outdoor opportunities to enjoy public art in Anacortes. In addition to public art at various parks, see sculptures at the Madrona Grove Sculpture Exhibit by Windermere. This display is located behind the Depot Arts & Community Center at 611 “R” Avenue.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
