EVENT INFO: August 2020: Abbey Arts will not be hosting public gatherings at our venues in Seattle until Public Health guidelines allow. Because producing streaming music & arts falls within essential services as described in Governor Inslee's stay-at-home order, we are able to present select events online with all standard social distancing and Public Health practices in place at all times during the production process. We believe music and the arts are incredibly helpful for mental health, whether in a time of quarantine or not. In addition to providing a much-needed service to the community, we are also creating financial opportunity for artists whose livelihoods have been adversely affected by the ongoing public health crisis.
