Pilchuck Celebrates

Pilchuck Celebrates is the annual tradition of bringing the school's most ardent supporters together. Attendance is by invitation-only.

We look forward to gathering at Pilchuck Celebrates during our 50th Anniversary year in 2021.


Every other year, Pilchuck Glass School honors a distinguished artist with the Libenský | Brychtová Award and a philanthropic leader with the Patron of the Arts Award.

The Libenský | Brychtová Award acknowledges extraordinary talent and high achievement in the world of contemporary glass. To determine recipients for this award, a jury is comprised of previous awardees. This jury considers an artist’s prominent standing in the world of contemporary glass, artistic achievement and educational leadership. Historically, the award has also acknowledged the teaching and ambassadorial contributions recipients have made to Pilchuck. The Libensky-Brychtova Award is the most significant artistic accolade that an artist can receive from Pilchuck Glass School.


The Patron of the Arts Award is given to those individuals whose leadership and philanthropic contributions have impacted Seattle, national, and/or international arts communities.


For more information, contact Lauren Mercurio, Director of Development at lmercurio@pilchuck.org or (206) 254-1962.
