First Friday Art Walk Sequim is a fun and free self-guided tour of local art venues in Sequim on the First Friday of every month from 5 – 8 p.m. Visit online at SequimArtWalk.com as your resource to download and print your own map, find out what special events are happening, links, and how you can be part of art. Our mission is to create approachable and accessible art and cultural venues that encourage the community to connect and celebrate expression and diversity.

 

November 3 Art Walk Color Theme is BROWN! Brown is the color of fall harvest and abundance, the turning of the leaves, and seasonal spicy treats. Brown represents solid assemblies, family trees with deep roots and supportive branches, community minded activities, comforting homesteads, and steadfast alliances. You will find works of art and folks supporting the option to dress in shades of bountiful brown or representations of hearth and harvest as they enjoy an evening on the town with down to earth friends and family. More details for the First Friday Art Walk Sequim can be found at the website SequimArtWalk.com
