Red, White, and Blue make PURPLE for the July 4 Art Walk Color Theme! Purple is the color of Sequim's famous lavender blooms and represents supportive spiritual efforts, dignity, royal thoughtfulness, and magical camaraderie. You will find works of art and folks supporting the option to dress in tints and shades of purple as they enjoy a festive night on the town with friends and fellow Sequimmers preparing for Lavender Weekend later in the month. We will see a lot of red, white, and blue for anniversary of the adoption of the United States of America's Declaration of Independence and the Art Walk has many places to celebrate in style.
