Seattle Times letters to the editor

Peter Donnelly

Truly one of a kind

The Seattle Art Museum family was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Peter Donnelly on Saturday [“Champion of the arts put Seattle on the map,” page one, March 30].

Peter did a superb job leading the Seattle Repertory Theater and more recently ArtsFund. A steadfast and passionate supporter and advocate for all the arts in this community, he leaves a lasting legacy. His marvelous sense of humor and lighthearted laugh, his welcome candor and wise counsel were without equal. We will miss him deeply.

Peter was truly one of a kind — and for those who knew and loved him, we are comforted by extraordinary memories of Peter Donnelly, Seattle’s “godfather of the arts.”

— Mimi Gates, director of the Seattle Art Museum
