White Center, underground: Artists’ skate pickup beneath Southgate Roller Rink
Today’s old skates, tomorrow’s art. Well – May’s art. Tonight, Amanda from the White Center Art Walk presided in the basement of Southgate Roller Rink as artists came by to pick up skates to turn into the “dynamic roller-skate sculptures” that WCAW is seeking. The artists’ marching – um, rolling – orders are:
- Max out your design at 4′ wide x 2′ tall
- Utilize up to (5) pairs or (10) skates
- Make it wall mountable
- Like the Native Americans with the Buffalo hunt, include as much of the roller skate as possible (ie; the boot, truck and wheels). A surplus of clay wheels are also available for use.
- Sculptures must be completed by May 9th
They’ll be spotlighted during the May 19th White Center Art Walk.
Five artists picked up their materials while we were there this evening.
