July’s First Thursday art walk in Pioneer Square coincides with the Fourth of July holiday this year. In response, several gallery owners have coordinated moving the First Thursday art walk to the second Thursday of the month – July 11, 2013. Free garage parking will be available on July 11th at the Frye Parking Garage only. No free garage parking will available on July 4th.
Pioneer Square’s First Thursday art walk is not organized by any formal entity. While the Alliance for Pioneer Square does promotions and marketing for First Thursday, it is largely a grassroots event. When a few studio and gallery owners realized many venues in Pioneer Square were not going to be open on the Fourth of July, they coordinated a First Thursday opening on July 11th instead. The Alliance for Pioneer Square, WSDOT, and SDOT supported the move by coordinating free parking at Frye Garage.
See you on the art walk on July 11th!
