Event gets kicked off on December 12th with Art Up/Open Up
SEATTLE – November 4, 2008 – The Greenwood-Phinney neighborhood is the latest Seattle community to get a monthly art walk, and the Greenwood-Phinney Chamber of Commerce is kicking it off on Friday, December 12, from 6-9 p.m. with Art Up/Open Up – a celebration combining the new art walk with a holiday shopping event.
The new art walk will occur on the 2nd Friday of each month and will include everything from visual art, music and performance art to special discounts and promotions. For the kick-off on December 12, all neighborhood retailers are encouraged to stay open from 6-9 p.m. for the holiday shopping season. This evening will be a great chance for people to shop locally and support their community as well as lay the groundwork for educating them about how Greenwood-Phinney can be a great place to explore great food, cool stores and interesting arts and entertainment.
In addition to the art walk, the Greenwood-Phinney Chamber is partnering with the North Seattle Boys and Girls Club to create a Snowmen on Parade fundraiser. The Snowmen will be decorated by local artists and Boys & Girls Club members, then will be displayed along Greenwood Avenue North and auctioned off the night of the December 12 art walk. All proceeds from the sale of the Snowmen will go to the North Seattle Boys & Girls Club to purchase memberships for kids whose families are unable to afford the annual fee.
