You’re Invited! Kessler Center Student Art Dedication and Open House
Posted on 08/03/2022
Kessler Center

Community members are invited to tour the new Kessler Center and attend the dedication of student artwork titled ‘We Are One’ on August 15 at 5 p.m.  The dedication and open house will be held just prior to the School Board meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. that evening. The Kessler Center is located at 1501 39th Ave. SW.

The three-dimensional interactive student artwork ‘We Are One’ is an art project by Puyallup High School graduate Lauren Anderson. Six separate pieces of this artwork are displayed throughout the community and illustrate the connection between persons of different genders, races, ethnicities, and ages. The Kessler Center is one of six locations throughout the community displaying the art. The collection can also be seen at the Puyallup City Hall, the Puyallup Library, Pierce College, and the Mel Korum YMCA.

The central location of the Kessler Center will be used for all School Board meetings beginning August 15. The 38,000 square foot multipurpose student services center houses programs such as Highly Capable, Puyallup Digital Learning, and Special Services. It will also be used for staff professional development trainings. The facility was funded through State Match funds made possible by the voter-approved 2015 School Construction and Facility Improvements bond.
