Artwork > Art Interruptions Rainier Valley Greenway

The Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation, selected seven emerging public artists to create temporary art installations along the new Rainier Valley Greenway.

For Art Interruptions 2018, 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.

I installed these street graphics on the sidewalks and some of the wheel-stops along 46th Avenue between S. Kenyon Street and S. Cloverdale and I hope the colorful graphics and phrases about connection will provide moments of unexpected delight and contemplation to those who pass by.
