Seattle City Councilmember Nick Licata has launched Seattle Art Walks, a neighborhood resource web page highlighting 13 art walks throughout Seattle.
The web site includes a map of Seattle surrounded with links to neighborhood-sponsored art walks. Fremont First Fridays are among the 13 art walks. The others include: Ballard, Upper Queen Anne, Belltown, Pioneer Square, West Seattle, Greenwood-Phinney, Wallingford, Madison Valley, Capitol Hill, Central District, Chinatown-International District and Georgetown.
Licata, long time chair of the Seattle City Council committee overseeing arts, highlighted the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs’ Creative Vitality Index. This 2007 data ranked Seattle’s overall creative vitality at roughly six times the national average.
