McIalwain to head

Edmonds arts center

Joseph McIalwain, development director for the Kirkland Performance Center, has been named executive director of the Edmonds Center for the Arts.

The Edmonds Public Facilities District, which hired McIalwain, is overseeing an $18.5 million renovation of the site of the former Edmonds High School at 410 Fourth Ave. N. The project’s centerpiece is a 1939 Art Moderne auditorium, which is being reconfigured into a state-of-the-art performance hall that will seat up to 740 people.

McIalwain’s first challenge will be raising the final $4 million needed to complete the construction.

The Cascade Symphony Orchestra, the Olympic Ballet Theatre, the Edmonds Community College theater program, the Choir of the Sound and other arts groups will share the facility, which is scheduled to reopen in December 2006.
