On Wednesday, June 18th, the Uptown Art Walk celebrates all things art and local Lower Queen Anne businesses open their doors to make it a lively experience for all.
This time around, the organizers invite everyone to start the Art Walk at any time during the day, with official hours running from 3pm to 9pm/10pm (depending on merchant). Don’t forget to pick up a Raffle punch card and drop it off at the after party at the Tin Lizzie Lounge at 9pm.
The Art Walk is also a great place to donate to the Queen Anne Food Bank. With the onset of summer, there’s a higher need for food as kids are out of school and school lunches are not an option. You can bring non-perishable food (tuna, peanut butter, etc.) and drop it off at Tin Lizzie’s donation bin. Bring 3 or more items and you get an extra stamp for the Raffle.
Finally, the Art Walk will be running at the same time as a live mural experience at Mud Bay Uptown and an art show by local artists Few and Far Women in “the Bombshelter” at 424 Queen Ave. N. Here are the details on these special events:
- 5pm-7:30pm: collaborative live mural Piece of the Sky by local mural artists Jonathan Wakuda Fischer and John Osgood at Mud Bay Uptown
- 5pm-7pm: Hi-Technique: Beyond the Glass Wall by local artists
Everyone is welcome to stop by the live mural event during the Uptown Artwalk to see artists create art from a blank wall. Plus, there’ll be hands-on art activities for kids presented by The Vera Project and a skate demo-clinic by Skate Like a Girl.
