ART SERIES EMERGES AT SUBSTATION SITE
From the Seattle Office of Art and Culture:
ALL RISE is a series of performances and temporary art installations organized for a city block at the location of Seattle City Light's future Denny Substation in the Cascade neighborhood through spring, 2015. The project is commissioned with Seattle City Light 1% for Art funds administered by the Office of Arts & Culture.
ALL RISE seeks to provide a platform to support and challenge artists; offer transcendent experiences and inspiration; and further the contemporary art dialogue of the region. Throughout these goals is an awareness of the place of the Cascade Neighborhood and an interest in engaging its past, present and future.
The Denny Substation is intended to be a part of the community and a benefit to the City of Seattle. While working with the neighborhood, Seattle City Light intends to offer transcendent experiences and inspiration through publicly accessible artwork. ALL RISE promises to be aesthetically and conceptually rich, encouraging views from multiple points while weaving the community into the work. For more information find us on Facebook
