Fall is just around the corner with less than two weeks of summer left. To celebrate the changing of seasons, the Fremont Arts Council is hosting Luminata — a light parade that goes around Green Lake on the last night of summer.

Drawings made using dirt swept from the street are featured in Tatiana Garmendia's installation, 'No Hiding Place Down Here.'

It may be cloudy, but if you're downtown you can still see a sunset tonight thanks to a new public mural.

Below Interstate 5 between Cherry and James Streets, 68 pillars have been painted as part of a project between Urban ArtWorks and the First Hill Improvement Association.
