Yesterday I went to the Olympia Arts Walk with my friend Sarah. Shops in downtown Olympia replace their window displays with local art displays. It was pretty cool to see. A lot of the shops had art that related to what they sold (the shoe store had paintings of shoes, etc.) and some had displays inside as well. Late in the afternoon, there is a Procession of Species that anyone can join in on. Some of Sarah’s relatives were participating in the procession (they were Samba drummers at the end) and that was one of the main reasons we went down to the Arts Walk. I took waaaaaaaaaay too many pictures of the costumes and sculptures so here is a (relatively) small selection.
