MAP at the Next50 in Seattle

The Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) is up in Seattle for the Next50, a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Seattle Worlds Fair!

Thanks to a generous grant from the Seattle Center Foundation we will be setting up daily interactive art installations at the Seattle Center from Wednesday July 17th through Sunday July 22nd, as well as satellite programming throughout Seattle neighborhoods.

We will be unveiling two new MAP constructions: A mobile pop-up cinema structure built in collaboration with Patrick D. Wilson, and a mobile screenprint cart towed behind a vintage Vespa scooter featuring the work of Seattle printmakers selected by PrintZero Studios Co-Founder Brian Lane.

These installations will feature artwork by MAP, Brian Lane and fellow Printzero Studios artists, David T. Olsen, Jonathan Grover, Scott Kiernan, Matthew Parrott, Everett Beidler, Justin Hoover, Patrick D. Wilson, and many more local Seattle artists. Also featuring musical performances by guest artists.

On Sunday July 22nd we will also be setting up Building Bridges of Peace Station, an interactive Pop-Up post office/mail art installation. A collaboration between MAP and Bay Area-based non-profit Building Bridges.
