On Friday, September 18 from 6 – 8 p.m. the foundation will host several artists including Naoko Morisawa, Carina Del Rosario, Hanako O’Leary and Esther Ervin who were selected to create temporary artworks for the Central Area Art Interruptions 2015. Morisawa, Del Rosario, O’Leary and Ervin will share sketches and slides of their installations and answer questions about their project inspiration and the process leading to being selected.

In the Central Area Neighborhood Greenway between E. Columbia St. and S. Judkins St. from September 4, 2015 – January 3, 2016, seven artists including Bayu Angermeyer, Carina Del Rosario, Esther Ervin, Alison Roshee, Naoko Morisawa, Hanako O’Leary and Sonya Stockton created small scale temporary art works that respond to their environments and communities. Artworks range from community portraits installed on the back of Greenway signs to whimsical figures perched in trees and larger than life whimsical birds’ nests.

Administered in partnership with Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) Art Interruptions is funded by SDOT 1% for Art funds and administered by the Office of Arts & Culture.
