A Good Vibe Attracts A Great Tribe

SeaTac based art-focused non-profit VibeHunters was formed by a couple of your Angle Lake neighbors, Bruce Bryant and Jim Todd. Their mission is to make SeaTac a more fun and vibrant place to call home through expanding art and creativity in town. The organization currently has two projects underway with ideas coming together for more.

You may have seen signs around for the SeaTac ArtAttack! contest encouraging residents of our town to create yard art installations all over the city. Quite a few entries have been received already and there is hope for a bunch more by the time the contest ends on Labor Day. Please consider joining in by making something fun at your place, or even at your neighbor’s yard.

The second project that is also in the works involves placing art in a location along South 188th Street. VibeHunters has received a grant from 4Culture, the King County arts organization, for an amount of $4500 to go toward the project. A well known local artist has been hired to conceive, build, and install this art piece and it will be exciting to see it go in! 

Our original budget for this piece was $8500 and we’d love to come near that figure to have local art we can be proud of. So, I’m here to ask our neighbors for donations to support this project and perhaps even start to fund future artistic endeavors. We’ve raised $600 so far and hope to fully fund this installation soon.

We’re thinking that since there was no annual fireworks display this year, instead of having your unallocated 2020 budgeted fireworks dollars just lying around unused, perhaps you’d consider contributing them to our 188th Street Art Project instead? VibeHunters is a registered non-profit so any donations are eligible for a tax deduction. 

You could send checks to:
3430 S 198th St
SeaTac, WA 98188

We love our neighbors and hope that with your support we can bring a little excitement to town! Visit our website at vibehunters.org
