The Fountains of George Tsutakawa

Hidden amongst Seattle's many public fountains are several treasures by a Seattle artist named George Tsutakawa, who gained international renown for his sculptural fountains. His life is a Seattle story: born to immigrant parents with a successful import/export company that was seized after the Pearl Harbor bombing, he was sent to Europe to fight for the country that had interned his parents and relatives. After the war, the family business gone, he obtained an MFA degree at the University of Washington on the GI Bill. He later became associated with the progressive Northwest School and is among the major, influential figures of modern Asian-American art. One could do far worse than spending a day hunting down Tsutakawa's public fountains and sculptures in Seattle. [...]

Raising the Bar: Catering Manager Sam Eisenhood

Sam manages a team of four that handle all catering orders. Of his job he says, "The people managing the stores are really dedicated to this company.

No Dominion

Margaret (Maggie) Mullin is a soloist with the Pacific Northwest Ballet (PNB). This past winter she performed a variety of roles, including the Sugar Plum Fairy and Marzipan, in PNB's heralded new production of George Balanchine's "The Nutcracker." For most soloists, just surviving the rigorous schedule of Nutcracker performances would be enough. Not so this year for Maggie. She's been busy adding documentary movie director and producer to her resume. When Pagliacci Pizza learned of the project and saw the passion and generosity of spirit that was going into the effort we made a significant donation. To learn more about "No Dominion" and its subject Ian Horvath please read on. [...]
