ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT
Sidney Art Gallery, Sidney Museum and the Log Cabin Museum:
Operated by the Sidney Museum and Arts Association. The Log Cabin Musuem built in 1914 currently houses changing exhibits of home life in the South Kitsap area during the past 100 years. The Art Gallery housed in the town's original Masonic Hall, is a block up the hill from downtown Port Orchard and the marina. The Sidney Gallery is a terrific place to find artistic treasures by renowned and emerging artists. The upstairs Sidney Museum features vignettes of early South Kitsap life
Northwest Metal Art Gallery, Neon Art Gallery and Northwest Glass Works:
Housed in the "Anything Neon" building, this funky, tucked away, vintage museum and gallery just outside of downtown Port Orchardis something you won't want to miss.
Local talent shines in dramas, musicals, and comedy productions presented throughout the year by the Western Washington Center for the Arts and the recently begun Port Orchard Community Theatre. South Kitsap High School is also respected known for its excellent drama program, which offers three productions each year in the Win Granlund Performing Arts Center.
