Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: more than a handful

This morning the Wikli has its hands full. Columbia Citizens have their arms outstretched, inviting you to lend a hand, try your hand, clap your hands, or fill them with neighborhood goods. Oh, and this is the last time Columbia Citizens can count on one hand the years we've shared this site: five years and counting.


Live locally.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

Columbia City ArtWalk & galleries

For the second month this summer, Columbia City has hosted another successful ArtWalk with great vendors, live music, live artists and fantastic galleries.

The ArtWalk coordinates with 6 businesses & organizations in Columbia City to show art from local artists in south Seattle as well as the greater Seattle area. The galleries include Salon Adidez, Pure Alchemy Salon, Church of Hope, Edward Jones Investments, Stash Quilt Shop, and Geraldine's Counter. Each month these businesses host a new artist for the month, with each ArtWalk being an opportunity for residents and visitors to peruse around the streets and alleys of Columbia City.

The next ArtWalk is Thursday, July 19 from 6-9pm. We hope to see you there as well!
