A Full Palette of Arts and Culture
Explore the arts and cultural offerings on
and off campus
Located in a university town adjacent to the state capital, Panorama is a vibrant retirement community of more than 850 homes, surrounded by arts and cultural opportunities. One of the premiere local venues, The Washington Center for the Performing Arts, offers a full season of performances by national and international touring groups, including music, dance, theater and family entertainment. At the end of any performance, you’ll often find the Panorama bus waiting at the theater’s front entrance, ready to greet the residents boarding for a 15-minute ride home.
Panorama’s central location makes it ideal for taking advantage of the cultural offerings of Seattle to the north and Portland, Oregon, to the south. Arts and culture thrive on the Panorama campus. Our residents organize and run their own choir and drama group. We also offer studios for painters, weavers and potters and a readers’ theater. The free Monday Night Programs feature some of the finest talent in the region, while the Birthday Dinner and Supper Club feature monthly concerts with a great meal in Panorama’s own Seventeen51 Restaurant & Bistro.
The arts are so important that Panorama and its residents planned, financed and built a brand new auditorium, opened in 2009, that provides more space for performers on stage and accommodates a larger audience.
