If ever nature creates a mural, she does it in spring. 

This spring in Seattle, we find ourselves taking a deep breath and gearing up for summer, the dry(er) season, and our favorite season: mural season! We hope you will save the date for two wonderful events we have coming up that will help us do our best work yet.

Friday April 25th
7 p.m. – 12 a.m.
Fremont Foundry
154 N. 35th St., Seattle, WA 98103

This Friday, come to a free party celebrating the Northwest’s best in mobile photography, enjoy complimentary beer from New Belgium, shake a tail feather to DJ Phosho & help raise money for Urban ArtWorks.

Last month, New Belgium & IGers Seattle invited aspiring and pro photographers to share their best Northwest shots on Instagram, with themes including “PNW Spirit” & “PNW In Motion.” Out of 4,000 #SnapshotPNW images submitted, 50 were selected to be framed and displayed at the Fremont Foundry as part of the gallery’s inaugural exhibit since its restoration & re-opening. All photos will be available for purchase, with proceeds benefiting Urban ArtWorks. Plus: free beer and dance party! Hope to see you Friday. RSVP here.

Want for bang for your buck? More murals for your money? More social change for your… loose change?

Then please mark your calendar for The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG event on May 6th! GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to generously support nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.

If you give any size donation on May 6th, your support will be increased via matching funds from the Seattle Foundation –  meaning even more overall support will go toward our creative work with underserved youth. The more donations we receive- the higher the match percentage will be!

Even the smallest donation can make a huge impact: you could be randomly chosen to win a Golden Ticket which will earn the selected donor’s nonprofit an additional $1,000. So $5 could be $1,005 – and we will paint you a custom hero cape!
