You will discover newfangled art, sun inspired events, and imaginative folks supporting the option to decorate and dress in all shades of green while you stroll on the town with friends.
Initiated in 2006, the First Friday Art Walk Sequim is an encouraging and educational arts event that is sponsored and produced by Renne Emiko Brock. Our mission is to create approachable and accessible art and cultural venues that encourage the community to connect and celebrate expression and diversity.
The Sequim Art Walk creates cultural vitality that is financially sound for a population and improves the quality of life in a community. The hope is that Sequim will become a destination for creative pursuits and products. A thriving arts community benefits all businesses that in turn support artists, educators, and cultural institutions.

Explore the Interactive Light Experience by Ross A. Brown at the Garden Clubhouse at Pioneer Memorial Park at 387 East Washington Street for the Sunshine Festival. Join us for this custom-built interactive environment that blends art and science encouraging visitors to look at light as an artistic design element and the physical properties of light. Art and science share a similar path of exploration, but with different intentions. Artist Ross Brown hopes this installation will instruct and also create wonder at the power of light to inform our lives. Ross shares, “Living here in the ’Blue Hole/Rain Shadow’ have you ever wondered what is ’light’? Most of us accept that it is and get on with our lives. This exhibit is intended to invite the viewer to experience light as a form of artistic expression as well as talk about ’what is light’. As the viewer, you will be able to interact with and manipulate the light to see and feel the extraordinary power of these electromagnetic waves we call light.”
