Its a great time for a Fall drive up to the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham Washington. On Friday November 12th the museum will be hosting its final Art And All That Jazz Benefit from 7-9 pm. The event benefits artists and the museum and features an incredible array of paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, photographs and jewelry. Proceeds from the sale will be shared equally between the artists and the museum.

If you happen to be in the area during their regular business hours (Tues-Sun, noon-5pm) you'll want to check out 1934: A New Deal for Artists, a show that celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Public Works of Art Project (PWAP) by drawing on the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s unparalleled collection of vibrant paintings created for the program. This show runs from September 18th to January 19, 2011. For more information about either show please see their website:
