More so than most cities, Seattle has shaped itself to suit its needs. Seattle has removed hills, filled tide flats, and created a completely new downtown shoreline. Join author David B. Williams on a 1.5 mile walking tour to explore the last vestiges of the former downtown bluffs, trace the lost island of Seattle, and examine how the subterranean fill still affects the modern landscape.

This walking tour starts at the intersection of Alaskan Way and Lenora Street along the waterfront and ends at Occidental Park. The tour is planned to occur the third Wednesday of each month running March through August. Recommended age: 4 years and older. Group size is limited, register on Eventbrite to reserve your spot for free. See our Visit Pier 62 page for tips on getting to the waterfront and frequently asked questions.

ABOUT DAVID WILLIAMS

David B. Williams is an author, naturalist, and tour guide whose new book, Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound is a deep exploration of the stories of this beautiful waterway. He is also the author of the award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, as well as Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City and Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology. Williams is a Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum.

Join LDG’s Luisa MacCormack as we explore the world of the inimitable Louise Bourgeois!

Known for her site specific and monolithic sculptures, her haunting installations and her skill as a sculptor, unbeknownst to many, Louise Bourgeois’ oeuvre also includes a collection of literally thousands of drawings. Made over the span of her seventy year career, Bourgeois’ drawings are perhaps the most immediate of the artists’s works – often created late at night whilst suffering from insomnia, or as a kind of creative diary, the drawings explore universal and deeply emotional themes, all through the medium of doodling.

This class will explore Louise Bourgeois’ obsession with Drawing through a series of mindful drawing exercises, working both from imagination, some of Bourgeois’ own writings, and from her oeuvre, expect a series of unusual therapeutic exercises designed to make use of drawing as a cathartic tool.

 

You will need

LOTS of paper, Red ink or pens, Pencils and Black ink or Pens

‘Drawings are thought feathers, they are ideas that I seize in mid-flight and put down on paper.’

– Louise Bourgeois

 

“The realistic drawings are a way of pinning down an idea. I don’t want to lose it. With the abstract drawings, when I’m feeling loose, I can slip into the unconscious.”

– Louise Bourgeois

 

“I know that when I finish a drawing, my anxiety level decreases,” she once said. “When I draw it means that something bothers me, but I don’t know what it is. So it is the treatment of anxiety.”

– Louise Bourgeois

Please read the following FAQ’s as you may find the answer you are looking for already listed below. If these do not answer your question, then please email us with the subject heading “UNRESOLVED ENQUIRY” and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience!

Love, LDG
