Pokémon, music, original work combine in Sequim’s First Friday Art Walk

The color yellow is the theme of this evening’s event.

SEQUIM — Chase Pokémon while enjoying live music and viewing original artwork tonight during First Friday Art Walk.

Art Walk is a free self-guided tour that leads participants to local art venues in Sequim on the First Friday of every month.

Visit www.sequimart walk.com to download a map of participating venues.

It will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The color yellow is the theme of this evening’s First Friday Art Walk in Sequim, said Renne Emiko Brock-Richmond, who sponsors and produces the event.

Yellow shines like the sun fueling our world and inspiring creative communication,” Brock-Richmond said.

“The brightness of yellow represents happiness, cheerful friendships, expressive enthusiasm, and empowers goodwill and justice.”

Yellow also is “for bright Pokémon Pikachu,” Brock-Richmond continued.

“During the Art Walk, come out and play Pokémon Go while lures [are] put in downtown Pokéstops near venues to attract more Pokémon for you [to] collect. Who will control the Pokémon Gym near the Sequim Civic Center? Red, Blue or Yellow?”

Brock-Richmond encourages attendees to wear yellow when exploring the various shops and events.
