There are a few Storefronts you should include in your First Thursday Art Walk tonight. Now that the artists have had more time in their spaces they have more to share! In Pioneer Square you can stop into Melanie St. Ours and LUKE Haynes at 610 and 604 2nd ave, respectively. Melanie St. Our’s theater project One Forbidden Thing will be holding an open rehearsal and LUKE will be having his Gallery LUKE opening, both from 6-9pm. If you go to Soil or Platform Gallery, you’ll pass by Ingrid Lahti’s neon sign installation. Now that the sun is setting earlier, you can see how her lit art brings life to the formerly dark windows in the evening.
If you are planning to check out the ArtSparks DXARTS event in Occidental Park, you’ll find Dan Reeder’s Gourmet Paper Mache dragons on display at 312 Occidental.
A significant portion of Storefronts activity will also be happening in the ID. If you walk up Jackson you’ll run into Videa’s latest visual media installation at 666, and Brite Collective’s Social Club at 676 – pictured left. Brite will have games to play and will be discussing their upcoming event TAKE OUT – a food excursion in the ID this Saturday at 2pm.
Architecture 101 (601 S King St) has been busy holding workshops for kids. These workshops foster creative and analytical thinking through the experience of architectural design. Kim Krech will be in the transformed studio (pictured right), to show off the classroom to the neighborhood.
While you move between the creative spaces, you’ll notice a variety of Storefronts installations. John Fleming has made changes to his large window space above Hing Hay Park, right around the corner is Chauney Peck’s take on functional aesthetics, and Chris Engman’s large wood installation is right next door to the Pinball Museum at 510 Maynard.
To top off the evening, stop in at the popular Seattle Pinball Museum. They will be open for play from 6-9pm, so if you still haven’t gotten your game on with these pinball enthusiasts, tonight’s your chance!
