If you’re in town this weekend — and not going to Bumbershoot — here are a few ideas for going out and about around Capitol Hill. Happy Labor Day Weekend.
If you’re a Capitol Hill proper resident, you may have seen Darryl Ary painting outside of the City Market. Few of the new residents are aware that he’s a decorated artist, with Basquiat like tenacity. His perspective is terse and unforgiving; the images are emotionally evocative and speak poignantly to the gentrification of Capitol Hill, the Central District and the Greater Seattle Area. His work will register with any Seattle native. His exhibit is only up for 3 more days, so please don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to see one of Seattle’s rarest gems.
You may recall in August we share a call for Hill folk to share Ary’s works.
Take a jog and make some friends as Fleet Feet hosts a Thursday Pub Run through the streets of Capitol Hill.
Tour the Harvard/Belmont district on a Saturday Rich Life on Capitol Hill walking tour with the Seattle Architecture Foundation.
Saturday, score some used books at great prices at the rescheduled Pistil Books’ Annual Outdoor Book Sale.
And save some room — and a little patience for the long line — as Li’l Woody’s hooks you up once again with a free Labor Day hamburger.
