By master · August 5th, 2011 · No Comments

It’s that time again. Friday, August 5th is the first Friday on the month and so the Fremont First Friday Art Walk will go down between 6-9 pm. Along with the usual festivities, there’s a few special events going on as well.

One man band Nick Moyer will be bringing his simultaneous accordion, trumpet, and drum playing skills to the Lenin statue from 7pm – 8pm. This talented musician and Columbia University student has been seen entertaining the public from the Ballard Sunday Market to the New York City subways, covering everyone from Sufjan Stevens to Irving Berlin to Yann Tiersen’s “Amelie” soundtrack. Stop by the Lenin statue (at the corner of Fremont Place N and Evanston Ave N) and check out his impressive live performance!

The Fremont Arts Council will also be hosting an art-making booth in the square from 7-8:30pm, teaching art walkers how to make Fabulous Felt Corsages. The clothing theme is in keeping with their upcoming fundraiser: Funky Fabulous Clothes Swap on Sat., Aug. 27th from 1-5pm at the Fremont Doric Lodge.

Check out the full schedule and list of venues & artists here.
