Upper Playground SEATTLE and FIFTY24SEA Grand Opening

Upper Playground is opening a new storefront in Seattle’s University District! The new store marks the second Upper Playground retail establishment in the Pacific Northwest after the 2006 opening of Upper Playground Portland and fine art gallery FIFTY24PDX. In celebration of the new store, there will be a variety of events held this weekend, SEPTEMBER 19-20, including live art installations and an in-store appearance by photographer/director Estevan Oriol. Oriol will be signing copies of his 2009 calendar and items from his Estevan Oriol sub-line. An exclusive series of Seattle-inspired apparel designs will also be available.

The Upper Playground store will have a separate space for the art gallery FIFTY24SEA, which is a similar format to many of Upper Playground’s other retail locations. There will be a special art exhibit at FIFTY24SEA featuring the works of Estevan Oriol, Alex Pardee, Munk One, Basco, Mear One, Parskid, Angel 179, and Herbert Baglione.
