CAPITOL HILL ART WALK
Thursday, July 11 at 5pm to 9pm
Every second Thursday of each month, rain or shine, the streets of Capitol Hill are filled with tipsy art lovers checking out galleries and special events. Art Walk starts at 5pm. Capitol Hill Block Party supports the Capitol Hill Art Walk financially and through media partnerships. We're honored to be able to support the great work of Jeanine Anderson and Laurie Kearney.

CAPITOL HILL ARTS DISTRICT
Capitol Hill was the first district to be named as part of the Arts & Cultural Districts program, in November of 2014.
Capitol Hill’s Pike / Pine neighborhood is the densest arts neighborhood in the State of Washington. Over the course of the past 35 years, a diverse group of arts and cultural organizations have been re-occupying a formerly light industrial area known as “auto row.” The district is now home to over 40 arts and cultural organizations.
At the same time, the neighborhood is experiencing rapid change and gentrification. Existing arts organizations are under real threat of being displaced by rising rents and redevelopment. Capitol Hill is increasingly perceived as being in danger of losing its soul.
The Capitol Hill Arts District is a coalition of arts advocates galvanized to keep Capitol Hill a thriving art scene invested in the creation of daring work, independent artists, and emerging ideas. We promote cultural engagement; harness resources; and preserve, enhance, and create space for artists and the arts.
