Columbia City ArtWalk starts Thursday


Community Arts Create (CAC) is bringing back its flagship initiative, Bohemian Backstreet — the art walk considered the first and only of its kind in Southeast Seattle. Starting Thursday, May 17, we'll invite people from all over Southeast Seattle to share a diverse and rich amalgam of culture and art in the streets of Columbia City.

Bohemian Backstreets provides an avenue for the greater Southeast Seattle community to experience multi-disciplinary art. Taking from the look, feel and atmosphere of Parisian streets, Community Arts Create has shaped a wildly fresh and new take on the usual arts walk. The uniquely community-driven Bohemian Backstreets not only features traditional visual art (drawings, paintings, etc.) but also takes an interactive approach with live music, performance art, spoken word, dance and of course, food. Patrons will also be able to view the mural project spearheaded by CAC and its community partners, and will also be able to take part in painting some of the panels.

There will musical performances by folk singer/songwriter, Simon Kornelis, as well as The Seattle Fandango Project, which combines song, dance, and audience participation. Make a pupusa guided by Chef Ariel, and wander around one of the 6 galleries showing art.
