The Week Ahead @ Henry





The Seattle Foundation’s Give BIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live. Each donation made to the Henry on The Seattle Foundation’s website by midnight on Tuesday, May 6 will receive a prorated portion of the matching funds. The foundation will “stretch” all donations up to $5,000 per donor, per organization to grow your gift.


During Give BIG, individual donors will be drawn at random to win a Golden Ticket! The winner will have an additional $1,000 added to their donation, and will also receive a $100 Starbucks gift card! Everyone wins!

Donate to the Henry here!

Mindfulness Meditation

Thursday, May 8, 12:30 – 1:00 PM

Give us thirty minutes and just see how stress melts away in the face of art and being still. These 30-minute “drop-in” mindfulness-meditation sessions are held on the second Thursday of each month. Meditations begin promptly at 12:30. Free and open to the public.

Mirror Check

Sunday, May 10, 2:30 pm

In Mirror Check, a performer uses a small, round hand-held mirror to inspect all visible parts of her exposed body. Mirror Check — one of Jonas’ earliest works — marks an important theoretical and artistic turning point in her practice, when mirrors cease to be a material utilized in her sculptures and become actual instruments in her live performances.

Formulary for a New Wildness

Saturday, May 10, 1:00 – 2:30 PM

Feelings (Wonderland Trail).

Feeling Wild? Curious about the Pacific Coast Trail? Artist Susan Robb will be hiking the trail and creating new media, social media, and site responsive art in her project Wild Times. While she hikes the PCT, we will visit the Skyspace with artist Eric Olsen and psychotherapist Nicole Wiggins for 90-minute explorations into what it means to be wild within ourselves and contemporary culture. Free with Museum Admission.
