What’s Happening In The Seattle Area This Weekend? | April 29

Hey there Seattle!

Lake Washington is calling your name!

Have you been to the amazing Gene Coulon Memorial Park on Lake Washington in Renton?  

Come check it out this weekend, or try one of the other ideas below!

My nephews are going to go fishing in Marysville with a fishing coach.  (Their first time!) and I’m headed to Leavenworth for a Mom’s Retreat.  (My first day off in six months!)

If you want to get out on the water, you can get an hour FREE in a rowboat at the Wooden Boat Center near MOHAI on South Lake Union.

What are you doing to relax these days?  Write me back, I would love to hear from you!

1) Virtual: Brooklyn, NY Street Art and Graffiti Experience

Let’s visit Brooklyn and discover some of the finest street art in the world!


Our experience will be broken up into five parts:

1: Transport to a coffee shop in Brooklyn filled with stunning artwork. There, we’ll chat about what street art means to each of us. We’ll also begin a fun ‘Lego art’ scavenger hunt featuring pieces from local sticker artist, RAD.

2: Take a guided tour through East Williamsburg and view dozens of commissioned murals, some over 40 feet in size! I’ll share amazing stories from a mix of local and international artists.

3: Travel back in time to the 1970’s to learn about NYC’s early graffiti and hip-hop scene. We’ll explore the origins of this art form– from tags and ‘Wildstyle’ pieces, to different crews and techniques.

4: Visit the Bushwick Collective, the largest outdoor street art gallery in the U.S.A. See a wide range of iconic pieces from some of our legendary artists.

5. Hop on a virtual subway ride to the Wall of Justice– a new space devoted to a powerful art movement. Bonus: Get to see some ‘creatures’ on the train with unique artwork by Subway Doodle.
