WINSLOW — Start the New Year enjoying art, culture and some downtown dining on Jan. 6, 6-8 p.m., at Winslow’s first First Friday Art Walk of 2012.

This month, OfficeXpats hosts the featured exhibition entitled “American Street Philosophers: in Pursuit of Happiness.” It is a series of 30 Northwest natural photos by Steve Wilson.

Wilson is an acclaimed photojournalist with a portfolio from the Seattle World’s Fair to LIFE and National Geographic magazines. In recent years, he has turned his attention to listening to and photographing homeless people, and was surprised at the articulate wisdom and sensitivity he was privileged to capture.

Wilson will be at the reception to show photos and read from a complete draft of his project, called “American Street Philosophers: in Pursuit of Happiness.” Refreshments will be served.

OfficeXpats is located at 403 Madison Ave. N, Suite 240, on the second floor of the Pavilion. For more information, visit
