Capitol Hill Art Walk!

Blitz: Capitol Hill's New Arts Walk Kickoff Thursday June 11

On Thursday, June 11, Capitol Hill is launching Blitz - a new monthly arts walk showcasing the businesses and creative cultures that thrive on the Hill. Produced by the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce (CHCC), the walk includes a range of arts including visual art and music, performance art and even culinary arts. Blitz will keep the neighborhood hopping from 5:00 - 8:00 pm next week and the event will continue on the second Thursday of each month.

No gallery? No problem! Put your art on a stick and join the parade!

To help celebrate the June 11 launch, Blitz is featuring an all-invited ‘Art-on-a-Stick Parade.’ The parade begins at the Broadway Performance Hall Plaza at Seattle Central Community College, where double-dutch jump rope team, On the Double, will kick off the parade. Artists and members of the community are encouraged to join in and present their talent to the public. The parade will follow along a route of businesses participating in Blitz and will end at performance space/tea house, Electric Tea Garden (1402 E. Pike Street), where the artwork will be displayed. The Electric Tea Garden is also hosting the Blitz after-party, featuring DJ’s and dancing.
