Hello, people.

Looking for something fun to do on Thursday, Oct. 18 in Seattle? Well, you can take in part of the City Arts Fest, where I’m doing a collaborative arts piece with my friend, Pol Rosenthal.

We’ve designed a one-day installation for a storefront window as part of the festival’s Culture Club – Genre Bender evening. I don’t want to give everything away, but our piece involves plants, glass bottles, me and my friend, a microphone, a TV set, some speakers, a DVD player and a 1977 TV miniseries that starred LeVar Burton, Cicely Tyson, Louis Gossett Jr., Ben Vereen, O.J. Simpson and more. Our installation is called “JungleBox.”

We’ll be installed in a storefront at 411 Union St., between Fourth and Fifth. It runs 8 – 9:30 p.m. and it costs $10. Well, if you want to see other installations inside the space there’s a charge. But you don’t have to pay to stand on the street to watch me and Pol and the TV set. And you’ll be able to hear us from there, too. Stop on by if you want.

And if you want a hint to what you might see, look below.

Take care. Be well…
