First Hill Art Interruptions 2014 announcement

Keep an eye out on First Hill this summer for Art Interruptions!

Ten artists have been selected to develop a series of artworks that will inhabit city sidewalks and parks to offer passers-by a brief interruption in their day, eliciting a moment of surprise, beauty, contemplation or humor  for Art Interruptions 2014.
