It’s near given that everyone looks forward to summer, and for varying reasons. My reason, the Seattle Art Fair.

Join me this year. I'll venture through the numerous awe-inspiring works and take you with me on our @slocation Instagram stories.

The Seattle Art Fair has called the West Coast home every August since 2015. Founder Paul G. Allen created this three-day public event based on his vision for investing in the region's cultural and creative fabric. The result, an inspiring space for all generations to explore.


Nato Thompson


As I scroll through the calendar of events, I’m thrilled to see the public program, curated by the renowned Nato Thompson. For those of you who aren't familiar, Nato Thompson is the current artistic director of Philadelphia Contemporary, an art institution founded in 2016 by Harry Philbrick. Thompson is very much involved in matters related to political engagement and activist art, and has written books on these subject matters. This year, the art fair will focus on the exploration of identity, gender, indigeneity, and technology.

See you on our Instagram!
