The Factory says
The Joke's On Us: an exhibition by tnglr (www.tnglrart.com), Peter Benjamin Bigelow and Donald Walingford. Based upon their street art installation of faux Proposed Land Use Signs in front of Seattle Landmarks on April Fool's Day 2015.

The installation is intended to fuel and raise the profile of the debate over the rapid growth of the City of Seattle, building development, gentrification and their effects upon the infrastructure, power structure, artists, lifetime natives, poor and disenfranchised, personality, appearance and soul of the City of Seattle. Who is benefiting and who is being squeezed...The Joke's On Us.
