    1.I think you guys should grandfather me into a storefront space since I have 25 years of Seattle pop-up gallery history.

    2. Consider doing pop-up sculpture gardens. I helped create 4 when my studio was on Post Alley including harbor steps…..i can flesh out the idea for you but basically its just like the current storefronts concept except its outside. Some spaces are viewing only, others touch and view. Surprising artworks out there for just such a project.

    3. Bring the storefronts concept to the suburbs….

    thanks for your attention, feed back ok.

    • Hi Billy,
      Thanks for taking the time to send this.

      I’m glad you have such a history in Seattle and have done such good work doing pop-ups and similar efforts, which is near and dear to my heart.

      We’ve had projects out in Auburn and Mount Vernon in the last year, as you may know, and have explored other neighborhoods, suburban and urban, in which to run programs and are considering an environmental (outside) model as well

      For the moment the areas are defined by those neighborhoods and communities that can fund the program, as we are essentially a “fee-for-service” model with some supplemental grant funding. I’d love to be active all over the state, but unfortunately that would require more staff than we currently have, and would require significant funding to make it happen.

      There is clearly a need and interest for our services, since I receive a number of inquiries and requests for space. That being said, we run a panel process to allow for some equity and quality control in the process, and I am committed to that for a number of reasons, both practical and philosophical.

      Thanks for reaching out!
