Seattle boasts the nation's oldest art walk, and this month, you can go to it twice.

Below, find out which galleries are having events in and around Pioneer Square tonight, like Miha Sarani: Everywhere at Once Add to a List , as well as one-night events like New Year, Still You Add to a List . You can also find more options on our First Thursday calendar, including those galleries which will have receptions next week.

Brighter Future: To be heard. To be seen. To be free. Add to a List
Continuing in the tradition of yehaw by accepting every submission, this massive group show done in collaboration with the Ethnic Heritage Art Gallery at King Street Station features more than 100 objects by more than 50 local artists of color. Riffing on the idea of “freedom” and what it means to be free, artists present their thoughts on the current political climate in the city via a wide variety of mediums: painting, sculpture, video, etc. Of particular note is the intimate and contemplative Dani, Mexico City by local photographer Marilyn Montufar, used on the flyer for the show.
