How do you create Home?
Since 2018, multidisciplinary artist Soo Hong has pondered this question. Rain Village is a community arts project that brings together communities in conversation and creation on the topics of belonging and mutual empathy. Soo invites patrons to participate in an example of social practice by completing a mural of a topographic map of Kirkland. As a guest of the gallery, you are encouraged to add raindrops to the map, as well as view artworks on display that were created in separate iterations of this project in Seattle, Redmond, Issaquah, and Bellevue.
Featured Artists: You! There are many participatory elements of the Rain Village Project. Come visit and leave your mark.
Thanks to ForanSuon for creating the featured 3D ceramics.
KAC would like to invite patrons to attend artists panel discussion “Finding Home: Conversations on Community and Creativity,” on July 9 at 3 pm for a dialogue with artists Maja Sereda and Rupa Palasamudram, facilitated by Associate Curator Ellen McGiven and Miha Sarani.
