Out of Sight Seattle

When out walking last night I ventured a look into the upper windows of King Street Station, and I could see tiny human forms still busy transforming the interior space for this weekend’s gigantic art exhibition Out of Sight. In the true spirit of an arts community, King Street Station has been a hive of art and action with volunteers rehabbing and rebuilding the interior 24,000 foot space for the arts collective and its opening event tomorrow.

King Street Station InteriorIndependently run and funded Vital5Productionsfounder Greg Lundgren has been working tirelessly to reform the neglected and sizable third floor of King Street Station into an art exhibition this weekend. The curatorial team includes Kirsten Anderson and Sharon Arnold from Pioneer Square gallery Roq la Rue, and Sierra Stinson to organize and facilitate this alternative arts effort that features 110 Pacific Northwest artists. Out of Sight is running in conjunction with and in response to the more well funded Seattle Art Fair over the same weekend. Born of the notion that many Seattle artists would lack exposure there, Lundgren secured a lease and a key to the historic station. The key appeared prominently on social media more than a month ago.

The opening night celebration kicks off with Derek Erdman spinning records along with special performances by Doug Newman and Mal DeFleur.

Word is Lundgren plans to make this an annual event. Great news for Seattle arts, the underused King Street Station and Pioneer Square. Come out and make it happen.
