First Thursday, Seattle’s largest art walk, is coming up on July 5th, 2007 – over 35 galleries, studios, spaces, booths, and shops are participating, with new art openings and other fun events.
But did you know that the SAM Downtown and the Seattle Asian Art Museum offer free admission all day on First Thursdays? Well they do – if you’re lucky, you already have the day off – otherwise, take it off! It’s July – relax a little! More employers should offer paid Art Days for their employees – at least one per year. Maybe you should suggest it.
Occidental Park’s “Art in the Park” events should be in full swing. Check out the booths and entertainment by local artists and craftspeople, and enjoy live music by the Tim Turner Band.
