the long walk
Friday, July 23, 2010 at 9:00 AM - Sunday, July 25, 2010 at 4:00 PM (PDT)
Did you know that you can walk from Seattle to Snoqualmie? Join artists Susan Robb and Stokley Towles for a multi-day walk to do just that. Starting in Seattle on Friday July 23 and ending at Snoqualmie Falls on Sunday July 25, this is an opportunity for a 35+ mile adventure in “your big backyard.”
“An unscripted encounter with a place we think we already know,” as Susan describes, she and Stokley invite you to help form their band of “trail tramps,” a culture that will evolve as the group walks through urban and rural neighborhoods, camps in unlikely places, swims in the Tolt River and watches art films under the stars.
A support van will carry camping gear and related items, freeing you to experience the trails and the art you and your walking cohorts will be a part of. Thanks to Caffe Vita, a generous sponsor of the event, some meals will be provided.
RSVP is required by July 5, as is attendance at a short (but necessary) informational meeting on July 7 at 4Culture.
The Long Walk is one in a series of artworks commissioned by 4Culture and King County Parks to explore the Regional Trail System. For more information, please visit www.trailsproject.com.
