This season, we are traveling to more places than ever before to explore the rich and diverse selection of art in the Seattle community. We are committed to highlighting exhibitions and performances across various artistic mediums, produced by organizations both big and small.

Join KUOW’s Marcie Sillman as she pulls back the curtain on the creative process, giving participants a glimpse of why and how an artist creates work, and we hope, a greater appreciation for the rich and diverse cultural community in our region.
