I went to hear the artists talk about their storefront installations and murals and then took the tour. Market Street never looked so good 🙂 Here are some images I took that evening.

The overall theme is transformation and/or change and each artist interprets these ideas in a diverse multi-faceted way. Two take in the idea of city lights/neons within the installations, two utilize the migration of swallowtails on market – something i was unaware of. The best thing to do is to go and view these six installations and five murals to Market Street between UN Plaza and 6th Street by artists Alexis Arnold Vanesa Gingold Madeline Erik Otto Indigenous Arts Coalition Cat U-Thasoonthorn Robert Harris Paz de la Calzada Vicky Knoop and Beatrice Thomas Rafael Landea Amber Hasselbring.
