Columbia School fence beautification project

The Columbia City Business Assocation (CCBA) is now accepting artist proposals to lead the design, installation, and overall management of a project to beautify the north-facing fence at the northeast corner of the Columbia School property, located on the 3500 block of S. Edmunds St. The CCBA's goal is to transform as much as 430 feet of the existing rusted chain-link fence into an attractive backdrop for the enjoyment of the school’s students, Columbia City Farmers Market customers, and pedestrians walking to light rail. Funds available for this project are $3,800.

Laws of Nature: Laws of Man discussion series

The Rainier Valley Cultural Center is piloting a science and law discussion series in May and June. Featuring Morton and Phillip Tavel, scientist father and lawyer son, the series will explore the phenomena of the natural universe and the principles of society and how they affect us on Tuesdays, May 22 through June 12 at 7pm.

These discussions will be presented in lively, 50-minute talks, followed by a brief question and answer period. The discussions are independent of each other and audiences don't need to attend one to understand another. Tickets are $10 at the door.

The Rainier Valley Cultural Center is located at 3515 S Alaska St.
