Pollinatrix: Seattle Storefronts

I'm pleased to announce an installation entitled Pollinatrix, featured as part of the 2011 Seattle Storefronts program, designed to activate vacant storefronts with art and creative ventures.  From March 15 through June 15, the piece can be viewed at all hours of the day or night in the windows of 409 Maynard Avenue South in the International District. 

Over the course of the three-month stretch, I will be maintaining a blog about Pollinatrix to document the work and announce time-based engagements with the space.  Look here for upcoming acts as they unfold.
