Artist Angela Larsen leads Seabury School students in a study on the modern city, and the construction of this installation.
Angela Larsen with Seabury School
Woolworth Window #1, near Commerce & 11th St.
December 31, 2017 – March 15, 2018
This project is part of TRANSFORM – The Tacoma Theater District Culture & Transportation Plan.
Angela Larsen states “Students have been studying modernity and the modern city with their general education classes and we are using these windows as the first opportunity to collaborate on an artwork as well as a way to explore the idea of buildings and their components. Students are working individually or in small groups to build their structures only using cardboard, tape, and glue and we will work as a team to install the final piece into a stacked cluster type city. The buildings reflect very primitive materials and construction and that are contrasted by metallic cellophane surrounding the structures on the floor of the windows.”
