The Great Northern
In progress: October-January, 2015
Exhibit: January 17th-February 27th, 2016
Hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 12-6pm (and by appointment)
This winter, local artist and current Guggenheim fellow Rick Araluce has hand built a large replica of Seattle’s Great Northern train tunnel. When it opened in 1905, it was the highest and widest tunnel in the US. Rick’s version is half scale, filling MadArt’s studio. Viewers will find themselves immersed in a sensory experience that incorporates light and sound, creating a mysterious illusion. After four months of construction, The Great Northern is now open through February 27th.
This exhibit is supported, in part, by awards from 4Culture and the Office of Arts & Culture.
