The Sunday Edition (On Monday): Local News

Saturday September 29 is Museum Day 2007

Museum Day is a nationwide event where participating museums and cultural institutions across the country offer free admission, allowing for one day only the free-admission policy of Smithsonian's Washington, D.C.-based facilities to be emulated across the country.

Many Washington locations are taking part in this fun one-day event. Crowd-pleasing favorites such as the Seattle Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, and the Henry Art Gallery, as well as more off the beaten path venues like the Birthplace of Seattle Log House Museum and the World Kite Museum. And lots more! Find a list here and plan your day.

Participate in the Artist Trust 2008 Auction

Seattle’s Artist Trust is already underway planning their 2008 Auction. If you are interested in performing or donating artwork, find instructions on how to submit here. Submissions received at the Artist Trust office on or before October 1st, 2007 will be considered for the 2008 Auction.

Based on the smashing success of the 2007 Auction, this will be a great chance to show your artwork to hundreds of Seattle art makers and supporters. Artist Trust also needs a small army of volunteers – I volunteered last year and had a fabulous time.
