Muralist Ryan Henry Ward paints at SAM's Sculpture Park.

It's fun, it's cheap, it's Seattle culture - for $15 or less.

Lots of truly great events this week, starting with The Stranger's Night of Genius Film awards and continuing through the opening night of KEXP’s Concerts at the Mural series. There are also outdoor movies to catch along with one chilling indoor movie. But I am most excited by Saturday's Olympic Sculpture Park lineup, which includes live mural painting. As I, alas,  work on Saturdays, please enjoy that event for me.

Night of Genius: Film
Frye Art Museum, Wed. 7/31 from 5:30- 8 p.m., $10
Continuing the showcasing of this year’s Stranger Genius Award nominees, tonight honors three talents from the Seattle film scene. Feature filmmaker Zach Weintraub, short filmmaker Scott Blake and cinematographer Benjamin Kasulke (known for his recognition at SIFF 2012 and his epic hair) will all be on hand to present their work (in shorts and clips) and answer audience questions. As usual, drink specials and socializing (at Vito's) will follow.

Jamison Green
Capitol Hill Public Library, Thurs. 8/1 at 6:30 p.m., FREE
Jamison Green has been a longtime advocate for trans rights, and his 2004 memoir Becoming a Visible Man (which chronicles his transition from lesbian to heterosexual male) elevated him to a place of even greater esteem in the LGBTQ community. Green, who continues to advocate for the trans community with his recently earned law degree, will be in Capitol Hill discussing his book.
