FUN Art Event Tonight!

Free Life Center is a large-scale freestanding artist installation crafted from salvaged building materials. The one-room structure emanates the artist' homespun aesthetic and their commitment to a high level of DIY craftsmanship and it is full of art, video, color, sound and love.

"From the structure itself, to the art, inspiration, collaborations and experiences of their newest project, Mark and Seth hope to spread ideas that can lead to a more healthy, happyand creative free life." - Leslie Miller, Pacific Northwest College of Art

WHERE: URBAN LIGHT STUDIOS, 8537 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103

PNA Home & Garden Tour

The PNA’s Home and Garden Tour returns this Sunday, June 13, 11am - 5pm. The event features five remodeled homes and five urban gardens in the Phinney/Greenwood neighborhood. This year’s homes feature basement remodels, kitchen remodels, second story additions, solar panels and a bocce court. The gardens include native and exotic plantings, ponds, waterfalls, unique patios and hardscapes. Plenty of ideas and inspiration to embark on your own projects.

The tour is self-guided and you can view the homes and gardens by walking, biking or driving (keep in mind that parking may be difficult). Slip-on footwear is recommended as participants must remove their shoes before entering each house. Tickets cost $12 for PNA members and $15 for the general public and are available online (www.phinneycenter.org) or at the Phinney Neighborhood Center. Babes-in-arms are free, and tickets for children ages 2-12 cost $5.

Online tickets must be exchanged for the Home and Garden Tour brochure at the Phinney Neighborhood Center. The ticket brochure includes a map, addresses and a brief description of each home or garden.
