Seattle PrideFest Gets Arty With Queer Art Walk This Thursday

A highlight for the Queer Art Walk: Allan Carandang’s show at Sole Repair.

Many of us would like to see Seattle’s celebration of LGBTQ Pride be a tad more focused on events of an artistic nature instead of the non stop pounding beat of a bass line and the shrieks of drunken drag queens. There’s nothing wrong with some debauchery at Le Disco and our glittery sequinced sisters encouraging us to boogie all night long, but ya gotta have some ART to go with all that nightlife lovin’.

To kick off Seattle’s pride festivities on a more genteel note, the folks at PrideFest have coaxed 11 venues on Capitol Hill’s normal monthly art walk to “queer” it up for this month’s edition by featuring LGTBQ artists and themes. They’re calling it an “art walk within an art walk” but you should be aware that OTHER venues not on this “Queer Art Walk” list are also featuring art and artists from the community, including St. John’s who have an exhibition from photographer Michael McAfoose/Urban Focus Studios.

Art Walk venues have varied schedules but most are open for the Walk from roughly 6 to 9pm on Thursday, June 11th with some starting earlier and closing later. See below list for times for each venue. Most art in the public spaces will be displayed through the end of June; check with each venue for exact dates. Most of these shows will have artists in attendance.
