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.

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.

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.”
