NEPO 5K Walk don't run

Molorazzi did a 5K today.  Okay okay, truthfully I did drive part of the way, but still, I feel like I accomplished something, checking out this AMAZING EVENT put on by NEPO House.  The work that the organizers put into planning and funding this even and the work that all the artists did, should be applauded!  It's rare that such a fun, engaging, and community based art even ever takes place in Seattle and I am amazed at how well it was pulled off. 

Hats off to team NEPO:  Klara Glosova, Bond Huberman, Amanda Manitach, Leanne Grimes, Rumi Kushino, Todd Jannausch, Erin Shafkind, Susanna Bluhm Callahan, and Seth Damm, and all the other people who pulled it together.  

If you missed it, here's a sampling of images from the day, more-or-less in order of the events!

Lots of art on display in NEPO house itself, and the neighborhood was essentially turned into a block-art party complete with music, beer garden , free tacos, art installations in the street and all over.  It was a great time, I couldn't really soak it all in, and fled to the solitary confines of Molo's fortress of solitude for respite, but what a fantastic event!
