Next Tuesday is GiveBIG, Seattle’s annual day of charitable giving, and nonprofits from across the city will be asking you to give to their organizations on that day (full disclosure: we’re going to ask you, too).
Why GiveBIG is such a big deal is because during this 24-hour event, all donations made online through Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG are “stretched” by the Foundation and GiveBIG’s sponsors — meaning, they grow your gift which then makes a bigger impact on your chosen organizations.
When you give on May 5th, your dollars go farther and you can make a bigger difference for the organizations you care most about. Last year, GiveBIG inspired over 64,000 donations totaling $12.8 million for over 1,600 organizations.
We ask you to consider giving (BIG is awesome, but gifts of all sizes will make a big impact) to the Henry during GiveBIG next Tuesday. Your support of contemporary art is greatly appreciated!

In Mirror Check, one of Joan Jonas’s earliest works, a performer uses a small, round hand-held mirror to inspect all visible parts of her exposed body. Mirror Check marks an important theoretical and artistic turning point in her practice, when mirrors cease to be a material utilized in her sculptures and become actual instruments in her live performances.

Here are some of the upcoming events and exhibitions in store for you at the Henry in early 2013:
This Friday in the Henry Auditorium, Stacey Mastrian and Stephen F. Lilly will present selections from John Cage’s vast and tremendously diverse output that employ the voice in its many facets. This is the final event in our public programming series commemorating the 100th birthday of the iconic American composer-musician-artist-philosopher-poet John Cage.
Soprano Stacey Mastrian is a Fulbright Grantee, Beebe Fellow, and Richard F. Gold Career Grant recipient whose performances have been broadcast internationally. Her repertoire ranges from late Renaissance to contemporary, and she specializes in 20th-century Italian vocal music, as well as the works of John Cage and Morton Feldman.
Stephen Lilly is a composer, new music performer, bass player, audio engineer, educator, and published theorist. Much like Cage, Lilly highlights aspects of musical performance that are often ignored or taken for granted. He is a full time faculty member at the Art Institute of Washington and has taught courses in recording, mixing, mastering, post production, and broadcasting.
