Tatiana Garmendia is an inter-disciplinary artist with a figurative twist. Her work synthesizes formal concerns and a humanist engagement with history and culture. “History is not a subject I just picked up from a dusty schoolbook, but things I’ve actually lived. I remember playing in abandoned missile trenches as a child,” says the artist, who was born in Cuba during the height of the Cold War. Repatriation from the Spanish government took the artist’s family first to Madrid, and later to the U.S.A.

12th and Pine is a project by Marshall Law Band that includes an album, a graphic novel and a documentary. Produced by Jack Endino, the album is a secular sermon that delivers a visceral punch. A product of this time in Seattle, Marshall Law Band's new project is the next step in the revolutionary ideal for human rights and social justice set forth by civil rights leaders including Dr. Samuel B. McKinney from Mount Zion Baptist Church who brought Dr Martin Luther King Jr to Seattle in 1961.
