ART THEMED, of course. Dress as a work of art or as an artist, etc. Haute masquerade, artistes! Picasso and his bull, perchance? Morris Graves, a vivisected Damien Hirst, a hard shiny Koons, Louise Bourgeois and her buxom Fillette.....?I've heard about a couple of the costumes. Dang, people are creative! This should be loads of fun. Hopefully, there will be some of my favorite/confounding candy mix by Jason Hirata. @ The Living Room more info
Are you afraid to be alone in the dark? Do you ever get scared when you think of all the bridge and tunnel monsters that'll be out on Halloween? Do you shriek at the sight of a shiny shirt?

From the Hideout, to the Hunt Club, to Vito's and all points in-between, we are going to transform these two blocks of First Hill into a parade of costumes, parties and general spook. From 7:00 pm to 2:00 am First Hill bars will be abuzz with live music, drink specials and decoration. And one dazzling costumed person will walk (or crawl) away with our $500.00 cash prize. So get your costumes into gear! The winner will be announced at the stroke of midnight at Vito’s.
"This is the inaugural year of the $25,000 award, now the largest grant available to individual artists in Washington State. Supported by The Dale and Leslie Chihuly Foundation, the Arts Innovator Award is given annually to two Washington State artists, working in any discipline, who demonstrate innovation in their art practice by originating new work, experimenting with new ideas, taking risks, and pushing the boundaries in their respective fields."
"The Frye Art Museum’s exhibition showcases Keller’s enigmatic subjects—corpses, séances, dancers in trancelike states, martyred saints, and burning witches—to reveal a potent combination of religious fervor, mysticism, and sensuality. It presents key paintings by Keller from the Kunsthaus Zürich, whose collection was recently enriched by the remarkable gift of more than three hundred paintings by Albert von Keller from the estate of Swiss chemist Oskar A. Müller (1899–1994)."
"Versus features an array of local fashion talent ranging from veterans to budding designers, including CMRTYZ, Bri Seeley, Angel Gehm and Marie-Caroline Moir. In addition to creating these original works, the Versus designers are also collaborating with non-fashion artists (musicians, film editors, poets and photographers) to create a truly unique presentation of their designs/pieces."
