“I ❤ West Seattle” Art Flash Mob!

Join the special Summer Fest Eve Art Flash Mob, Thursday, July 11!

Put your love of West Seattle on canvas in one hour. It’s FREE to join and there will be cash prizes!



Adults and Youth (15 and under)


Choose your favorite West Seattle scene – Alki, Lincoln Park, Solstice Park, Vashon Ferry, Lighthouse, Farmers Market, or your own backyard. We will paint, draw or collage al fresco in the West Seattle Junction during booth set-up on Summer Fest Eve. The Art Flash Mob will take over the street in front of CAPERS. Bring your supplies and any visual reference you would like for your scene. After we’re done, take your artwork home or donate it to Summer Fest to be displayed at the Community Stage in Junction Plaza Park!

There will be two prize levels:

  • $100 in cash for the best representation of what we love about West Seattle – adult category
  • $50 in cash for the best representation of what we love about West Seattle – youth category

Artwork will be judged by a panel of esteemed community members.
