PDL presents The Bureau of Arts & Culture

Vital 5’s final exhibition at the historic King Street Station opens Thursday, December 1st at 6:00 pm, with artist collective PDL.

The Seattle World’s Fair in 1962 was a time of great optimism and excitement. It represented what Seattle could become and, by many accounts, was called ‘City of the Future’. Artists, designers, and big thinkers all imagined a future that captivated the region’s, and world’s, attention.

That was a long time ago.

For many of us, that early enthusiasm has been replaced with frustration and negativity. Optimism has derailed in the name of economic growth. Our faith in a better city, a better Seattle, has eroded as gentrification and politics have failed to usher in an equitable and progressive platform for diversity, innovation, and sustainability. Our 1962 enthusiasm has become tarnished and faded. Our dreams have been scaled back from ‘City of the Future’ to ‘City Just Trying to Keep its Shit Together.’

On December 1st, PDL presents The Bureau of Arts & Culture – a new exhibition presenting 21 creative proposals designed to return the city to a place of optimism and excitement. PDL reimagines Seattle through various private- and city-sponsored projects, which, among other things, artfully tackle homelessness, income inequality, cultural tourism, the re-imagining of public space, and the future use of King Street Station, EMP, Harbor Island, Woodland Park Zoo, the Olympic Sculpture Park, and our downtown core.

Please join us December 1st for our opening party 6:00 to midnight, and Saturdays and Sundays (noon to six) through December 18th.

*Opening party is 21+ and a $5.00 donation is requested at the door.

Gallery hours will be December 3,4,10,11,17, &18 from noon to six.
