Following Capitol Hill and West Seattle last night, Greenwood/Phinney has its big summer street-art festival tonight, and Georgetown's Art Attack is Saturday night.

In Greenwood/Phinney, this is the last time Bherd Studios will be in the location where it has established itself, down in the basement of the Greenwood Collective—Bherd is moving across the street to a spot where it can get better foot traffic. So fare well to its basement vibe, which even the owner loves and says she's "heartbroken" to have to leave for practical reasons.

Another big event of the evening up north is Between Heaven and Hell: Underground, Alternative and Urban Artists Take on Comics, Superheroes and Supervillains at Echo Echo.

Down in Georgetown tomorrow night, there's a show of alternative comics "box art" reimagined as failed video games at Fantagraphics. Krab Jab presents art based on Dungeons & Dragons and other RPGs.

Saturday is also the soft opening of the Georgetown Arts & Cultural Center's new, expanded location in the 1904 Star Brass Works building.

It's also the Fred Marino building, named after an Italian immigrant in early 20th-century Seattle. Artist John Schuh created this 2009 photo collage featuring the brick facade and detailing from the roof of the Fred Marino building caught in a maelstrom of glassy recent towers. It's just called Fred Marino.

I'd like to know more about this Marino.
