Seven art installations along the Greenway have been on view in New Holly, Othello, Brighton, Lakewood and Seward Park neighborhoods since September, inspiring the route with an element of the unexpected until January 2, 2017. Seven artists designed a series of small-scale temporary art- works that are installed on city-owned street furniture and infrastructure, including signal boxes, sidewalks, and trees. Six of the selected artists participated in the 2016 Public Art Boot Camp, a free two-day intensive basic training overview offered by the Office of Arts & Culture’s Public Art Program for artists who are ready to translate their exhibition experi- ence to the public realm. 20 | UrbanStreets Seattle by Erica Lindsay, Communications Manager, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture Miniature Mobility by little talia Talia Silveri Wright, or little talia, honors the history of Seattle transit with a transportation-themed scavenger hunt. The tiny artworks, measuring approximately 1.5”x.75”, are installed in unexpected locations along the Greenway. The sculptures are inspired from historic and current-day street cars and include buses, trains, bikes and other forms of transportation. “Art Interruptions” Enlivens Greenway Flavors of Us by Kemba Opio Kemba Opio created two portraits fabricated from collaged aluminum cans donated by local DRY Soda Company. The portraits feature two African-American women (one is Opio’s older sister and the other a local musician), reflecting the beauty and diversity within women and, in particular, women of color.
