Artful nights on Capitol Hill: Art Walk, 3rd annual Lusio lights in Volunteer Park, ANiMA in Cal Anderson

In addition to August’s second Thursday bringing this month’s Capitol Hill Art Walk to the neighborhood’s galleries, cafes, restaurants, and bars, the next couple of nights will also fill Capitol Hill’s parks with art and performance.

Thursday, check out the monthly art walk including a few friends of CHS — a full roster and map is available at Make sure to stop by the Ghost Cabin installation, echoing with the spirit of a long-gone Capitol Hill farmhouse in Chophouse Row.

Friday, you’ll be faced with an artful choice — bright lights in Volunteer Park or a “future without borders” in Cal Anderson.

In Volunteer Park, the third annual Lusio event will again fill the park with light sculpture and glowing creativity. “Having that balance between light and sound just does something to your senses,” event founder Mollie Bryan told CHS about Lusio’s creation. The 2018 event begins around 8 PM Friday as Seattle’s northern light will only just be starting to fade:

Meanwhile, in Cal Anderson, a performance of ANiMA will bring “interactive, multimedia performances and storytelling” to the park led by Korean drumming group Olleam, community activist group Sahngnoksoo and LQ Lion Dance:
