For A Place Like TPAC
A Get Away Away.
Home to visual & performing artists
and rich Island artistic traditions.
The Red Barn serves as a sacred performing place.
Musicians gather to play
and try new stuff.
Fiber artists travel far to come here.
World class musicians & authors gather each year and call it a Festival.
All on this tiny island.
The Wilson and Carol Trueblood Performing Arts Center is a multi-purpose 253 seat theatre on Washington Island, Wisconsin. TPAC was made possible through the generous bequest of long-time summer residents Ruth and Wilson Trueblood, a gift of land and endowment funding from Arni and Mary Richter, and substantial support from the Washington Island Foundation and more than 800 individual, family and business volunteers and donors. TPAC is named in honor of Wilson and his daughter, Carol, and the performance space is named in honor of Mary Richter.
