Art Interruptions Rainier Valley Greenway
The Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS), in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), selected me and six other emerging public artists to create temporary art installations along the new Rainier Valley Neighborhood Greenway. These works were part of Art Interruptions, a project connecting neighborhoods through art. I created a Path of Wonderment and Connection: a series of colorful street graphics that include both imagery from my map art and also phrases that I wrote about connection and wonderment. I had these phrases translated into the six languages most frequently used in Rainier Valley: English, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Mandarin, and Amharic. I also had the phrases translated into the Duwamish language, Lushootseed, which was spoken in the valley long before any other languages were spoken there.
