Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing & Poetics alum Susan Brown (’14) has been busy! Her artist book Mythical Magical Physickal Madness was included in the Heroic Works exhibition at University of Oxford’s Bodleian Libraries last summer. In October, a second copy was exhibited at Seattle's Antiquarian Book Fair, which showcases thousands of rare and antiquarian books and ephemera.
Brown is also an Art Interruptions 2017 featured artist. This partnership between the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) commissions seven emerging public artists to create temporary art installations within the Delridge Neighborhood Greenway and Delridge Connector Trail. The artworks inhabit city sidewalks and parks and offer passers-by a brief interruption in their day, eliciting a moment of surprise, beauty, contemplation or humor. It ranges from the whimsical to the thought provoking, incorporating themes of ecology, history and social justice. Brown’s work, Wild & Creative Wonders, can be viewed by foot or bike, now through January.
