The Great Northern train tunnel was built under downtown Seattle in 1904 by hundreds of men with pickaxes. And at the time, it was the highest and widest tunnel in the country. (It's still in use.) Rick Araluce, the Seattle sculptor (who is also lead artist at Seattle Opera), typically creates and builds miniature hyperrealistic interiors, but The Great Northern is colossal in comparison. It's a just-less-than-half-scale replica of the actual Great Northern tunnel entrance under Third Avenue, with light and sound suggesting an actual train running in the 40-foot-long black tunnel in the gallery. You'll want to enter it, so you will, with your mind. Don't miss the artist talk by Araluce on January 24. JEN GRAVES
