Storefronts Seattle Project Makes Space for Art

This past fall, Pioneer Square and the International District got a face lift, thanks to some local artists. A new art installation project, StoreFronts Seattle (made possible by nonprofit arts organization Shunpike), allows artists (including local quilt artist Luke Haynes and couple Charles and Cindy Martin who boast an impressive pinball machine collection) to showcase their work in various vacant buildings free of charge. The inaugural round ran from September to November and the second round made its debut at last night's Art Walk and will run through February.

Read more about the project in this month's Spotlight section by Arts and Culture Editor Brangien Davis.
