path with art

The Path with Art Winter Voices showcase on Saturday afternoon at Richard Hugo House offers an opportunity  to experience arts, performance, spoken word and more from unique perspectives and voices. Path with Art is an outreach program which provides creative workshops for adults who are working to rebuild their lives after homelessness and other trauma.

path2“This inspiring show highlights the energy and creative output of Path with Art’s writer’s workshop, voice workshop, poetry writing, and butoh dance class participants. Path with Art transforms lives through arts engagement for adults in recovery from homelessness and other trauma who are working to rebuild their lives. Path with Art fosters self esteem, breaks down barriers to access, and honors all voices by harnessing the power of the creative process.”

The Winter Voices showcase is 3pm – 5pm Saturday and is free.

Recess_monkeyIf you’ve been keeping score at home, you already know about the Children’s Film Festival at Northwest Film Forum starting Thursday and continuing though February 2nd. Get more details on this international film fest for kids and families, the largest on the West Coast, in our write up here. In addition to numerous film screenings, the festival includes a pajama party with a performance by Recess Monkey on Friday at 7pm.

lust caution

Planning to hit up the Great Big Art Book Sale at Seattle Asian Art Museum? You may want to go on Sunday and catch a movie there too. Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution (Se, jie) screens in the Stimson Auditorium at 2pm and is free with museum admission. Rolling Stone declares, “Lee is a true master, and his potently erotic and suspenseful Lust, Caution casts a spell you won’t want to break.”

Check out the CHS Calendar for more events happening this weekend and beyond.
