On the List | Capitol Hill Art Walk, coffee block party, ByDesign film fest, Ghost Gallery birthday

TNT-@-SCAA-Event-Block-Party-e1426267676262It’s a weekend of art and coffee around Capitol Hill as the monthly art walk returns and thousands of caffeine peddlers descent on Seattle for a massive coffee convention.

As usual, you’ll find a full roster for Thursday’s April edition of the Capitol Hill Art Walk at capitolhillartwalk.com. Make time to include these two stops in your itinerary:

Capitol Hill Art Invasion
A cabal of over 30 artists take over Capitol Hill house for a one night art show.
On the corner of 12th and E. John Street, a classic house awaits demolition to make way for the construction of yet another high density apartment building. During the past decade, the house provided local artists, theater professionals and other small businesses with affordable studio and office space.

After Seattle
The reason why I call this exhibit After Seattle is that there is a point when a sharp increase in our city’s buildings, human activity, and economic volume will change it into something we could never foresee.

Due Process
CHS told you here about the project to give maligned Pike/Pine gentrifiers, bros, and Woo! girls their Due Process through art.

Thursday night also brings the Specialty Coffee Association of America Block Party to Capitol Hill:

Join a couple thousand of your fellow attendees for great socializing, music, a beer garden and the Thursday Night Latte Art Throwdown at Victrola Coffee Roasters! Area restaurants and food vendors will be selling adult beverages (to guests 21+), sample food and small bites.

Happy birthday, Ghost Gallery

Happy birthday, Ghost Gallery

Also this weekend, Northwest Film Forum hosts the annual ByDesign architecture and design film festival, the Moisture Festival brings IMPulse Circus Collective to the Broadway Performance Hall and the lovely little Ghost Gallery celebrates five years at E Denny Way and Summit.
