In memory of Bagley Wright (1924-2011) Jul 26, 2011

We at On the Boards will miss Bagley Wright and we honor the tremendous cultural legacy he leaves behind. It is clear that Bagley believed that a great city deserved great art. Through the constant support and involvement of the entire Wright family Seattle has developed a vibrant and active artistic community of organizations and artists that continue to present and produce art of world-class caliber. We are thankful for all that Bagley did for our entire community and specifically for his ongoing support of On the Boards.
