You're invited to the "Aurora Bright Dawn" Art Dedication!

Come join ALUV and artist Vicki Scuri for the dedication of “Aurora Bright Dawn” on Saturday, April 27th!

Aurora Bright Dawn was commissioned by the City of Seattle’s Arts & Culture as part of the Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) program. The NSF program funds projects requested by the community and is helping achieve ALUV’s goal of building community together- A safe, pedestrian-friendly, inclusive urban village that works for everyone.

Where: Oaktree Plaza Pedestrian Crossing Aurora Ave N at N 102nd St.
When: April 27th 12:00 pm-1:00pm
Who: Open to everyone.
What you can do: Although completely voluntary and not necessary to attend, Vicki Scuri is asking neighbors who would like to participate to donate solar LED globes that change colors. This donation will help by not only bringing a splash of color and light but also a sense of building community together.
