Fred Hutch Research Study Exploring the Common Cold

Do you have a lot of colds and wonder why? Do you never get colds? If you are around kids and want to help us answer these questions, please join our study.

Help us understand why some people get sick from the common cold more than others. We are currently recruiting about 200 people to participate in our study. We hope that this study may provide information to help with designing a vaccine for Rhinovirus or for other viruses. Rhinoviruses are responsible for causing 30-50% of common colds.  Some people report getting a lot of colds each year while others report never getting sick.

This study will compare the immune response to the common cold (rhinovirus) between people who feel like they rarely have cold symptoms versus those who have them more often.  We hope that by closely following the body’s specific immune responses in someone who has exposure to the common cold, we can better understand which responses may be required for a successful vaccine against the common cold.

Letterpress: Create at Lunch

One day’s not nearly enough time to learn the intricacies of letterpress, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had when you stick to basics and shoot from the hip — especially when you have an experienced letterpress instructor giving you help and inspiration. Whether you’re new to letterpress or know the lay of a type case like the back of your hand, you’ll enjoy playing with SVC’s collection of wood type and imagery, experimenting both on and off press with hand-inking and overprinting. And here’s another bonus: You can apply the tuition from this lunch workshop towards SVC’s 10-week evening Introduction to Letterpress class. So now you have one more reason to come learn these skills and more:

How to select the right typeface Printing with pre-carved linocut images Mixing inks to create the desired hue Best way to hand-ink a form The delightful effects of imprecise registration Operating a hand proofing press

September 24 - December 7, MadArt

Lure

MadArt presents Lure, a site-specific installation by artists/architects Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers of Dream the Combine, in collaboration with Seattle-based artist/engineer Clayton Binkley. Inspired by the interplay of light, people, and the architectural environment of MadArt Studio, Lure explores how the gallery engages with public space. The structure—both object and environment, lure and trap—consists of hovering pathways formed by steel supports and sliding opacities of mesh and plaster. Visitors step from the sidewalk directly into the artwork, instantly becoming immersed in a looping circulatory system that encourages exploration, curiosity, and reciprocal engagement between the form and its audiences.

Open Studio (open during construction/installation):

IN THE DARK… BY EMERALD CITY MUSIC

Ever hear a concert in complete pitch-black darkness?

Hey Seattle, we’re Emerald City Music, the “beacon for the casual-classical movement presenting high-level musicians in a totally unstuffy environment” (CityArts Magazine). We’re the eclectic, open-bar destination for Seattle’s music lovers to dive deep into the world’s biggest genre of music alongside an unbelievable cast of top-tier musicians.

On the heels of Halloween weekend, immerse yourself in a terrifying musical experience: Georg Friedrich Haas’s “In iij. Noct” for string quartet. With the absence of light as the focus, this hour long string quartet is performed completely in the dark as four musicians surround the audience from the corners of the venue. This, Haas’s third quartet of such nature, is composed as a verbal score, with many details and decisions left to the performers. No single performance of this work is the same; the musicians throughout the piece will decide (by communicating in complete pitch-black darkness) how far they wish to go down each musical path together before turning back.

Haas “In iij Noct.” (In the Dark)

Musicians: Siwoo Kim, violin • Kristin Lee, violin • Jack Stulz, viola • Mihai Marica, cello “Single-handedly raising Seattle’s profile in the classical music world, this series has major performers and composers in a chamber music setting. The venue, the back of a coffee and chocolate shop, increases the salon sensibility.” – ECM Audience member

Tickets: $45, includes open bar.
Students with valid ID: $10
