Happy August: Selfies in Volunteer Park, movies in Cal Anderson, three music festivals, and, yes, Capitol Hill Garage Sale Day


IMG_1878Artist Wendy Red Star spent Friday morning setting up Tableaux Vivant: Nature’s Playground in Volunteer Park. This weekend’s little piece of the Seattle Art Fair designed for selfies with “an imagined wilderness of assorted hunting decoys” joins a menagerie of good times in the month ahead in one of the sunniest Seattle summers ever.
