We hope to see you in Westlake tonight! To help you get into the spirit, here's a fun piece from KING 5:
Mayor McGinn and Dannette Smith, Director of Seattle's Human Services Department, visited the Pike Market Food Bank to encourage community support for food banks around the region this season.
Leave your mark on the Market and support the Pike Market Food Bank!
A mural honoring the spirit and service of the Pike Market Food Bank is being painted by members of the Market Community over the next few weeks. We hope that Market vendors, workers, neighbors, and friends will participate.
This is a great opportunity for co-workers and neighbors to form a group and share in the fun. If you are interested in reserving a time for your group, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the size of your group and your requested time slot.
How it works: Hundreds of participants will be re-creating small sections of masterpiece paintings by Cezanne and Millet. When the sections are assembled, the result is a new interpretation of a familiar classic that reflects the shared energy of the Market community.
It’s easy: no experience is necessary and all the supplies are provided.
It’s fast: you can paint your section in about 20 minutes.
It’s convenient: join us in the Atrium, just drop in during the dates/times listed below...
October 25, 26, 27 - 11am to 6pm
November 1, 2, 3 - 11am to 6pm
To make a reservation for a group or if you simply have questions, please email email@example.com.
Special thanks to the City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods for providing the matching grant that made this mural possible!
