A Maui-inspired photomural by Ha'iku abstract artist Brad Forsythe has been selected to be part of Seattle's City Panorama Mural Project.
A jury from Seattle's Photo Center NW and King County Metro selected images for the project. Artists worldwide submitted entries, and 100 images were selected to be installed on King County Metro bus shelters across the county. Late last year, King County Metro approached Photo Center NW looking for a way to expand on past mural projects, but this time through photography. As a way to incorporate art into everyday life, to beautify the city and to make new perspectives to the public art scene, the City Panorama program was created. The primary objective was to increase the visibility of the photographic arts throughout King County.
"When I learned my photomural would be installed in a suburban seaside community of Seattle, this told me the installation committee had put a lot of thought in to choosing where the public would view the art," Forsythe said. "What a thrill to know a piece of Maui-inspired imagery will be enjoyed by the people of Seattle through this public installation of work."
Work by Ha‘ikū abstract artist Brad Forsythe has been selected to be part of Seattle’s City Panorama Mural Project.
The image used for the photomural, "Southwest 1," is one of a series of works titled "Island Time." Several of these works have been selected for "Abstractions," a group exhibition scheduled for June at Art Project Pa'ia.
