ArtSEA: A colorful noodle spill on the streets of Seattle

What are you doing for Memorial Day weekend? This year the holiday seems to hold both summer plans and the promise of our post-pandemic future: barbecues with strangers! standing less than 6 feet apart while waiting in line for ice cream! And showing off unfettered smiles instead of those unsightly mask tan lines.

There’s a soundtrack for this hopeful feeling, courtesy of True Loves, the Seattle funk and soul band whose second full-length album, Sunday Afternoon, comes out Friday with a release party streaming live from The Royal Room (May 28 at 7 p.m.). A supergroup of accomplished local jazz and blues musicians, the True Loves have crafted an irresistible collection of instrumental songs that ooze effortless cool.

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs

Gage Academy of Art is committed to social justice in a diverse democracy
