We are just devastated at the passing of artist, George Woodall. George was a true visionary, leader, and good friend to Allied Arts Foundation. As chair of our Block Awards Committee, he championed the importance of mentorship for our high school arts award winners and raised many donations for the program. Seattle has lost an incredible artist and an amazing advocate for the arts. He will be dearly missed! You can read about George’s amazing life in The Seattle Times.
