Pioneer Square, where the experiment of the city of Seattle began, is now where poor people and art people come together once a month for the First Thursday art walk. The clash between how art resists and enables gentrification is never far from the surface of the art walk, and this month there’s a show directly about it. Paintings, photographs, and collages by Seattle artists Mark Miller, Spike Mafford, and Sally Ketcham record the process of Seattle becoming richer and duller since the 1990s. But what is art’s role in all this? Given that art and gentrification are such imperfect enemies, you’ll probably have a lot to consider.
