4Culture funds local heritage and cultural facilities projects

Eleven heritage facility projects were awarded $328,835 by 4Culture — the cultural services agency for King County. The program is designed to enhance the cultural life of county citizens by funding the purchase, design, construction, and remodeling of heritage facilities, and the purchase of equipment intended to be used for at least 10 years.

Recipients whose work benefits the Asian community include Densho: The Japanese American Legacy Project and the Wing Luke Asian Museum.
Other recipients include the Issaquah History Museum, the Museum of Flight, the Northwest African American Museum (NAAM), the Northwest Railway Museum (NRM), the Southwest Seattle Historical Society/Log House Museum, and the White River Valley Museum in Auburn.

Projects benefiting from 4Culture funds include the Center for Wooden Boats (CWB), the Historic Seattle Preservation and Development Authority, and the Vashon Park District. ♦
