Have a little downtime before heading to Music Fest NW? Saving the hike or swim for the heat of the day? Or just savoring these sunny weekends by lazing around the yard all day? Either way, we’ve got your noon hour covered. Here’s what’s simmering:

  • A new mural preserves the image and memory of Working Kirk Reeves- the street musician who serenaded Portland from the Hawthorne Bridge.
  • Portland comedians prepare for the first annual Stumptown Improv Festival, and remember the late Robin Williams.
  • Playwright Robert Schenkken and actor Jack Willis bring Lyndon Johnson to the stage for Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s award-winning pair of original plays.
  • Walidah Imarisha’s reads and discusses her evocative and socially conscious poetry.
  • Japanese Americans showcase the functional arts and craft made in WWII internment camps.
  • Quilter Sidnee Snell walks us through the fabric dying process.

It all starts Saturday at noon.
