STOP #1 on May's ART BUS Tour

Thursday May 15th 6 - 9 pm

The first stop on the ART BUS Tour Thursday brings us 5 exhibits at one great location! This show marks the 12th round of Woolworth Windows exhibitions brought to you by Spaceworks Tacoma.

Woolworth Window #1 (11th & Commerce)- Christian French has built a small, makeshift stage from theater trussing, and flooring, on which he will orchestrate a non-narrative performance by arranging and assembling a variety of objects.

Woolworth Window #2 (11th & Broadway)- For the past several years Spaceworks has offered a Woolworth window to display the large steamroller prints created at the annual Wayzgoose Press Printmaking Festival. This year, as curator, Jessica Spring organized the exhibit of these 10 large, bold, and spirited prints along with a large accordion book illustrated by Jeremy N Gregory.

Woolworth Window #3 (11th & Broadway)- . Spurred by the housing crisis,Kristin Giordano presents us with a series of suburban photographs, all taken on a toy camera adding the effect of nostalgia plus a dreamlike quality reinforcing the ideals of the suburban landscape and the American Dream.

Woolworth Window #4 & 5 (11th & Broadway)- Ellen Hochberg’s installation of photo frames, videos, and mannequin asks bold questions about the countless “invisible girls” around our globe that are undervalued by society.

We like the sound of "the Mayor in May" and we have had the Mayor as the celebrity tour guide in May before but she's out of town this time so we invited another local celebrity, the "Mayor" of Hilltop Rand Chiarovano, co-owner of Hilltop Loans! Come and find out how he got this nickname!
