Last summer, the Seattle Public Library teamed with Seattle Art Museum for “Legendary Children” a night time event that honored the “ball culture” scene as featured in the documentary film Paris is Burning. The SPL and SAM partnered with local Queer and Trans People of Color artists and groups to present performances and interactive events for the entire community.
That event was so successful, the Library and SAM are committed to the return of those “Legendary Children” with an all new party happening this Friday, April 29th at the Seattle Art Museum from 6:30 pm to 10 pm. The event is FREE but it’s best to reserve a spot by pre-registering to attend. Click HERE to snag your spot. Oh, and this is also a chance to check out SAM’s current big exhibit “Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic” for free as well. Wiley, a queer artist of color, has earned raves for this show but the clock is ticking to check it out; the exhibit must end May 8th.
Here’s all the poo about Friday night’s event complete with list of scheduled performers:
