This would normally be the night for Capitol Hill Art Walk… so take a Capitol Hill art walk?

Not everybody all at once, now. Wear your masks. And take to the streets here and there to make space.

The second Thursday of every month usually brings a new edition of the Capitol Hill Art Walk. Most of its venues are now — temporarily — shuttered or closed to all but takeout and delivery. But organizers say you can still participate:

Even though April Art Walk won’t be happening in person this Thursday, some venues are hosting virtual art walks and window shopping! Visit the site for updated listings; more to come. If you’re a venue that’s hosting an online/streaming version of your planned event, let us know and we’ll add it to the site! Or if you have a message to post to your patrons/customers, such as curbside pickup options, online shopping, etc, send us that info as well

You can check out for details on some of the “virtual art walk” stops.

You can also take a masked-up walk through Pike/Pine and across some of the other nooks and crannies of the Hill to see the explosion in murals, messages, and street art on the gallery of plywood that has popped up from shuttered businesses covering their glass to prevent vandalism and break-ins. Maybe just not everybody should go tonight.

You can help support some of the artists doing the board work here.

    • Agreed! Just. Stay. Home. It’s not, stay home except when the weather is nice or there’s something to go gawk at. It’s shitty, sure, but if we all do this now, maybe in June we can all come out and enjoy a real art walk.

  1. Can anyone shed light on the decrepit upper stories of the Lost Lake Cafe (amongst other businesses) building?

    The entire structure looks like pure garbage above the first floor…why?

    I mean, this could be be renovated and rented for $$$$$.

    Of course, that awful corner gas station has to go, but that’s only a matter of time…and the sooner the better.
