"The Locals" artists' reception

  • The Local 422 Summit Avenue East Seattle, WA, 98102 United States (map)

You are invited to join artists Marissa Sohn and Annieo Klaas for a reception celebrating the installation of their mural "The Locals" commissioned by Newmark Realty Capitol.

The mural is made up of four vertical panels, each with a photo that Marissa Sohn has created from the event posters all around capitol hill, and stained and painted by Annieo Klaas to emphasize the colors and shapes of the water damage on the posters from the Seattle rain. We wanted to record those posters in celebration of the vibrant arts culture that has been so integral to the development of the neighborhood. Capitol Hill has become a trendy place to live because of this rich history, so we felt that the mural should honor that history by documenting it in hopes that the new incoming residents will be inspired to contribute as much to the neighborhood as those before them.
