3 arty things to do this weekend in Seattle

Summer is back! Kind of — the Seahawks are playing again, sure, but the sun is playing, too. And you should be, too! Here are three fun things to do this weekend with an arty focus:

1 First Friday art walks

5-8 p.m., various galleries in Pioneer Square, Seattle;

6-9 p.m., Fremont galleries;

Free admission to Bellevue Arts museum until 8 p.m.

Seattle’s traditional First Thursday activities became First Friday, to accommodate the Seahawks/NFL kickoff party. Hey, we have room for ART and FOOTBALL. We’re a big city. Some of the gallery shows opening at receptions on Sept. 5 in Seattle: SuttonBeresCuller at Greg Kucera; Sally Cleveland and Gabriel Fernandez at Linda Hodges; Z.Z. Wei at Patricia Rovzar; Julia Freeman, Caroline Kapp, and Ellen Ziegler at SOIL. Party on!

2 Free concert at ALL RISE

8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, ALL RISE site, 1250 Denny Way, Seattle. Free. www.allriseseattle.org

ALL RISE is a series of performances and installations that are taking over a city block through spring 2015. The site will eventually be home to Seattle City Light’s Denny Substation, but for now, it’s a place for art, dance and music. On Saturday, Lori Goldston, Mike Gamble, Dan Sasaki, Greg Campbell, Clyde Petersen and Corey Brewer will present a multimedia work, Goldston’s “Hymn for the Mammoth Tusk,” billed as a “musical meditation on a small patch of the city.”

3 NEPO 5K Don't Run

1-6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, starts at Hing Hay Park, ends at the NEPO House on Beacon Hill, 1723 S. Lander St. $15 suggested admission. www.nepohouse.org

This isn’t your traditional 5K — it’s an enormous art walk, and you’ll want to take time to enjoy the 52 installations that have popped up along the route. The finish line doesn’t mean the end — music, a drinks garden and food trucks will rev up from 3-9 p.m. at NEPO House. Participating artists include Leo Berk, Claire Cowie, Joey Veltkamp, Kat Larson, John Teske and many, many more.
