Artist Susan Browns  

You’re invited to a guided art walk and community event at Cottage Grove Park this Saturday October 7, 10 am – Noon, as part of Art Interruptions 2017! This event will be a fun family friendly event hosted by Seattle Department of Transportation in partnership with the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, Seattle Parks and Recreation and Feet First. Individuals of all ages and abilities are invited to join this artistic stroll and meet the artists (see a sample of the artwork attached). The event will include both a 0.5 or 1.8 mile walk options. Other fun family friendly activities include face painting and an artwork scavenger hunt.

Art Interruptions is an annual outdoor art program nurturing new and emerging artists and this is the third year partnering with the Neighborhood Greenway program. The artworks inhabit city sidewalks and parks and offer passers-by a brief interruption in their day, eliciting a moment of surprise, beauty, contemplation or humor. This year the Art Interruptions route was selected to be the Delridge Neighborhood Greenway and Connector Trail to enhance and encourage the connection between the neighborhood and trail connection.
