MadArt in South Lake Union: A Henry Contemporaries Event
As well as touring the brand new Mad Art space , Henry Contemporaries committee members Jon Gentry (architect, goCstudio) and Kathleen Warren (director, Urban Artworks) will also share with us the process of creating Charred, a public art installation that revealed the new space to the neighborhood during construction. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Space is limited.

Art Break Tour
This month’s faculty tour will be led by UW School of Art Adjunct Lecturer Eric Fredericksen, who will guide visitors through The Brink: Anne Fenton.
In Mirror Check, a performer uses a small, round hand-held mirror to inspect all visible parts of her exposed body. Mirror Check — one of Jonas’ earliest works — marks an important theoretical and artistic turning point in her practice, when mirrors cease to be a material utilized in her sculptures and become actual instruments in her live performances.
Formulary for a new Wilderness
Feeling Wild? Curious about the Pacific Coast Trail? Artist Susan Robb will be hiking the trail and creating new media, social media, and site responsive art in her project Wild Times. While she is hiking we will visit the Skyspace with artist Eric Olsen and psychotherapist Nicole Wiggins for 90-minute explorations into what it means to be wild within ourselves and contemporary culture as part of Wild Times. Free with Museum Admission.
