A Walking History of the Arts on Capital Hill

  • 1620 12th Ave Seattle, Washington United States

In celebration of legendary urban activist Jane Jacobs 100th birthday, join us for a walk highlighting the history of arts on Capital Hill. Anne Focke (Arts activist and resident of Capital Hill, both now and in the 1970s and 1980s) and Michael Seiwerath (Capital Hill Housing) will lead you on a 60 minute tour of the seminal arts spaces on the hill. From neighborhood institutions, to a legendary 1969 conceptual art piece (John Baldessari and George Nicolaidis' BOUNDARY), little known gems (John Criscitello’s studio), and the ephemeral (V2), see the arts through the work of the visionary Jane Jacobs. The walk will end at Oddfellow’s Hall, where dozens of arts organizations had a home in the 1970-90s. Those so inspired can continue the conversation over drinks at the building’s Tin Table Restaurant.

Taking the Waters: Baptism, Business and Beck Street’s Vanishing History

  • Warm Springs Park

The Beck Street area of Salt Lake City has been largely neglected in the cultural imagination of Utahns since the construction of I-15, which simultaneously made Beck, part of the old Highway 89, obsolete and improved distribution capacity for the industries encroaching on the area. Thousands pass Beck on the interstate every day, largely unaware of the crucial role the area played, and continues to play, in the religious, recreational, industrial, and environmental history of the city. This was not always the case. An enormous hot springs complex once attracted visitors from all over the state and the nation, and a warm water lake once boasted sprawling resorts, yachting and year-round recreation where refineries and freeway now lie. During the heyday of Highway 89 alive with mom and pop diners and motels. However, it also was, and still is in many respects, a place for outsiders and itinerants. It is a place of rich and diverse history, if you know where to look. Join us for an exploration of hot springs and railyards, Swedetown and Superfund sites, baptism and perhaps a little blood atonement, for good measure. After the tour, attendees are welcome to gather at The Garage on Beck for some comfort food and a frosty beverage or two and talk about the area. This “walk” covers a fair amount of ground, so please bring a bicycle.

Florianópolis, SC, Brazil: 7ª Caminhada Jane Jacobs Floripa

  • Praça Getúlio Vargas, no, Florianópolis, SC 88070 Brazil

Jane Jacobs completaria 100 anos dia 4 de maio e vamos celebrar neste sábado com mais uma atividade da Caminhada Jane Jacobs Floripa! Desta vez vamos explorar o potencial lúdico da Praça dos Bombeiros, mais precisamente o recém reformado Parquinho da Dona Tilinha, provavelmente o mais antigo parquinho de Floripa e que também está de aniversário (50 anos). Vamos trazer filhos e sobrinhos pra brincar no parquinho, incentivando a relação das crianças com a cidade (Jane escreveu um capítulo dedicado ao tema em seu livro Vida e Morte das Grandes Cidades Americanas). Também vamos aproveitar para refletir sobre o interesse público e a privatização da gestão e reforma dos espaços públicos por construtoras. Não faremos um percurso caminhando, vamos ocupar um pedacinho da praça por umas horas para conversar, debater, brincar, fazer picnic. Estão todos convidados!
