Exhibition: Max Planck Images of Science @ Goethe Pop Up Seattle
Feb 4 @ 12:00 PM – Mar 6 @ 6:00 PM

Stop by Goethe Pop Up Seattle to see Max Planck Images of Science, striking images captured from scientific research at some of the Max Planck Society’s institutions. Free & open to the public.

Science often pushes back the boundaries of the known world to explore new topics and make the invisible visible. In the process of this work, a purely scientific documentation of research objects is created. And sometimes these images feature surprising aesthetic forms and structures. They are abstract works of art from a world normally hidden to the human eye.

Each year, scientists from more than 80 research institutes of the Max Planck Society enter images showcasing their work from the most various research fields. The most spectacular images form the basis of a travelling exhibit, which has been shown with great success in a variety of locations around the world, such as the Deutsches Museum in Munich, the ars electronica in Linz/Austria, the Frost Museum of Science in Miami, the National Library of Russia in St. Petersburg, and the German Science Centre in Cairo.

In Seattle Images of Science is a collaboration between the Max Planck Society, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, and the Goethe Pop Up Seattle.

Children’s Film Festival Seattle @ Northwest Film Forum
Feb 27 – Mar 8 all-day

Children’s Film Festival Seattle is a cinematic extravaganza that celebrates the best and brightest in international films for children, including animation, feature length films, short films, and hands-on workshops. CFFS provides a joyous and dynamic setting that cultivates intergenerational relationships and inspires younger generations to participate as agents of change in their local and global communities.

CFFS forges connectivity between people through visual storytelling that is centered on the experience of childhood. We prioritize stories that have been underrepresented in the mainstream media, which inspire empathy, understanding, and a nuanced view of the world.

Since 2005, Children’s Film Festival Seattle has grown to become the largest and most respected film festival on the West Coast dedicated to children ages 3-14. Each year, Northwest Film Forum selects children’s films from dozens of countries, reaching more than 10,000 people during festival screenings in Seattle and a subsequent festival tour of 20-25 U.S. cities.

Most festival events are held at Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Avenue between Pike and Pine on Seattle’s Capitol Hill, with the exception of Closing Day at Rainier Arts Center!

Yin Yoga in The SweatBox Loft @ The SweatBox Yoga Loft

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with asanas (poses), that are held for longer periods of time-five minutes or more per pose is typical. Yin, which is not a heated class, is a great pairing with a more yang style like Bikram or Vinyasa because Yin offers a much deeper access to the body. Appropriate for all levels. Yin Yoga is held in The SweatBox Loft. Use code 9642 to access Loft. Studio is at the top of ramp to the right. Y

Blood Water Paint @ 12th Ave Arts
Feb 27 @ 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

In 17th century Rome, painter Artemisia Gentileschi must fight for everything—her place at the easel, her father’s respect, credit for her visionary work. But in the aftermath of rape, she must fight for her truth, buoyed by her shared experience with the Biblical women she paints. Blood Water Paint is a raw and compelling portrait of a brilliant woman whose accomplishments were buried for generations under the weight of selective history. Since its adaptation into a National Book Award-nominated novel, the original play returns to Seattle.
