The first image I drew of this idea. Was thinking about loss, memory and nostalgia balanced by my hopes, dreams and expectations for a brighter future. It’s the relationship between this rainbow and its reflection that captures the totality of time in one image. The empty center is the present. It is now. An indescribable experience since we are in it and it’s only knowable by our visions of the the future and the slippages of the past. It’s in this present that we can choose, move, do something or nothing that sends endless reverberations into our circular relationship with time.
The King is back. Well, sort of. The ELVISTRAVANGANZA celebrates the 50-year anniversary of Elvis’s 1962 trip to Seattle, made famous by the film It Happened at the Worlds Fair.
Commemorating “The Past, The Present and The Future,” this year’s Bumbershoot Visual Arts and Spectacles showcase talented artists with an eye for imagining the future. Programming pays homage to the Festival’s home, Seattle Center, and its celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World’s Fair.
Bumbershoot presents cutting edge contemporary artwork, performance and installations that blur the lines between art and theatre. 2012 programming showcases a wide spectrum of styles, and artistic mediums from glass art, to painting, to neon.
