Welcome to Week 199

of the

Columbia Citizens' WikLi

Next week is Wikli #200, and to mark the occasion it'll be a tri-Wikli. We'll take some time off to recharge.


your Wikli-fix: staying power

The longer we stick around, the more we realize what an incredible place we've got here. Folks come to visit, decide to stay awhile, and many decide to make it home.

Next week's edition is Wikli #200. For the last five years Citizens have stuck with our online experiment in community building. Let's take a breather for a couple weeks before launching into the next 100.


Live locally.

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!
