5 Fun Things to Do in South Seattle this Weekend (August 5-7)

Lots of Seafair as well as a few other non-Seafair events if you’d rather steer clear of the masses. Whatever you do this weekend, enjoy, neighbors!

You’re posing for the camera. How do you want to be seen? Distinguished. Thoughtful. Stylish. Outrageous. Celebratory. Proud. In Posing Beauty, a century of photographs by a wide range of image-makers—photojournalists, artists, men, and women—explore beauty and highlight how we see ourselves and are seen by others.
