Alyson Piskorowski Brightens Your Commute

Artist Alyson Piskorowski has been quietly weaving an intricate new Storefronts Installation during these dark winter months. Alyson has transformed a window in a well-traveled corridor at the Vulcan Inc. headquarters into a springtime web of candy colors.  Using drywall mesh tape and wire rope, Alyson’s work is meant to evoke the transience and passage of the corridor, which is heavily trafficked by commuters heading to the International District Transit Tunnel.

The untitled piece is “meant to be viewed from different routes, at different times of day, offering the viewer new encounters from a variety of vantage points and lighting conditions,” explains Alyson.

To find the installation, head to the Vulcan building at 505 5th Ave S in Chinatown-International District.

When facing the building from 5th Ave S, look for the corridor on your left, down the way from the Starbucks.  Alyson’s work will be on display through June 2011.
