Access Art


Our Access Art program facilitates opportunities for participants to attend first rate performances, exhibitions, guided tours, and lectures, all at no cost.  By collaborating with our arts partners, Access Art exposes Path with Art students to the creative pulse of Seattle, providing access to local arts and cultural experiences and fostering a sense of active participation in the greater community.  Access Art also benefits local cultural institutions by broadening and diversifying their audience base.

September Access Art Registration is open from August 26th to September 4th!


Pacific NW Ballet | Carmina Burana
DATE:  Thursday, September 26th
TIME: 7:00  PM
LOCATION: 321 Mercer St, Seattle, WA 98109

That musical vision takes on corporeal life in PNB’s production of Carmina Burana. Set designer Ming Cho Lee’s massive golden wheel of Fortune dominates the world of the ballet, as does musically the hymn to the goddess Fortuna, which opens and closes Orff’s score and frames all the various songs between. Beneath the wheel, subject to its rule, the dancers—cast as ragged everymen, lusty country revelers, debauched tavern-haunters (including clerics fallen from grace), and aristocratic celebrants—express the indomitable yearning for fulfillment in love that persists no matter what life deals us.


Taproot Theater | Necessary Sacrifices
DATE:  Thursday, September 19th
TIME: 7:30 PM
LOCATION: 204 N 85th St, Seattle, WA 98103

Five words were meant to change a young country divided by civil war when abolitionist and Union recruiter Frederick Douglass challenged his president to act on the statement that “all men are created equal.” As these two brilliant Americans wage a battle for the future of the Union, their arguments affect not only their sons but the nation we live in today. Originally commissioned for Washington, DC’s Ford’s Theatre, Taproot Theatre produces the West Coast Premiere of Richard Hellesen’s drama.

Seattle Arts and Lectures | Malcolm Gladwell
DATE: Monday, September 23rd
TIME: 7:30 PM
LOCATION: 200 University St, Seattle, WA 98101

*Limited Space

Malcolm Gladwell kicks off SAL's Literary Arts Series with a reading from his new book Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know, which is good news for people who are into that kind of thing. To me, Gladwell represents the revival of the worst impulses in American storytelling and journalism. He is king of the metaphorically resonant but ultimately meaningless comparison, and he's obsessed with overblowing the claims of cherry-picked studies. Richard Posner called Blink "a series of loosely connected anecdotes, rich in 'human interest' particulars but poor in analysis," and the claim basically holds for all of Gladwell's other books. There should be a new John Waters-type law: "If you go home with someone, and they've got a bunch of Malcolm Gladwell books on the shelf, don't fuck 'em!" Unless you want to doom yourself to a life with someone who is content to describe the world using surface-level comparisons. That said, Kirkus gave his new book a starred review, so it'll probably read well.


Seattle Symphony | Mahler Symphony
DATE: Friday, September 20th
TIME: 12:00 PM
LOCATION: 200 University St, Seattle, WA 98101

In his opening concert of the Masterworks Season, Music Director Thomas Dausgaard sets an exhilarating course with Mahler’s universal First Symphony. Brahms’ piano concertos are on a scale larger than even some of his symphonies, and Yefim Bronfman explores the full dynamic range of Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto, from the jubilant scherzo to the graceful finale. The lively Flounce by the Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski opens the evening.

Priority for all Access Art events is based on prior attendance records, past wait-lists, and new student considerations, not based on when you register within the registration period. If you have any issues with our online form please email us at or call us at 206-601-7112. Thank you!
