On the First Thursday of every month, there’s an Art Walk around Seattle’s Pioneer Square. All the art galleries stay open late and thousands of people wander around looking at the art.
It’s a shame then that in the four years that I’ve worked in Pioneer Square, I’ve only Art Walked a handful of times. Maura and Joseph joined us on Thursday and we spent a pleasant couple of hours talking and wandering around, mostly through the Tashiro-Kaplan building. Muhsin was supposed to come too, but couldn’t find parking as the Seahawks played a pre-season game.
There are other First Thursday events: many of the museums are free after 5pm. The Seattle Art Museum, the Science Fiction Museum and the Experience Music Project, and the Museum of Flight all are.
