People's National Bank Art Show (1960)

Friday, December 1, 2023

Historic Anacortes is largely associated with the booms of its early industries, fish processing and wood mills. However, a boom in the 1950's may define today's Anacortes even more than the other two - an artistic boom. Largely propelled by the middle-class women in the area, the Anacortes art scene really began to flourish in the 1960's with the creation of the Anacortes Arts and Crafts Festival. The art scene's female roots can be seen in this People's Bank showcase of Anacortes women's art. The important strides women like this made have been integral in defining the artistic identity of Anacortes.
