Mad Homes Transforms a City Street into a Ground-Breaking Art Installation
A 3-week art installation, Mad Homes will convert half a block of Seattle’s North Capitol Hill neighborhood into a novel and dynamic exhibition. Redefining the way art is made and experienced, 11 local artists will create paintings and sculptures out of four adjacent 100-year-old homes. Open from July 16 – August 7, Mad Homes will take place on Bellevue Avenue just off of Roy Street on Capitol Hill.
Mad Homes is the latest in a series of projects from MadArt, a Seattle-based organization dedicated to fostering community engagement in the arts through novel installations. For example, in the summer of 2010, Seattle’s Cal Anderson Park became the site of MadArt in the Park, a 6-week art exhibition which invited six sculptors to create temporary outdoor installations, giving the public a rare glimpse into the creative process. As Mad Homes and MadArt in the Park illustrate, the organization is on a mission to engage and educate through one-of-a-kind art experiences.
