Open Floor is Back!

Eric Carson here-

Working in the Operations department of the Henry has given me and the rest of the gallery staff a unique perspective on the inner workings of an innovative visual arts institution.  The Open Floor program was started as a truly bottom-up model for monthly arts programing.  It flourished last year but has since slowed down. We’re ready to speed it up again.

As of today, Open Floor is back to its old self.   Beginning January 14th, with a presentation by UW poetry collective Stray, Open Floor will be just that – OPEN.  Do you have an idea/body of work/piece of dance or music that needs to be seen?  Email me and the Open Floor gang at and let us know!   We want you to use our auditorium as a platform for whatever you’re working on.
