Wallrus: The Open Town
SEAT (Seattle Experimental Animation Team) in conjunction with Sound Transit, and with
support from the NW Film Forum present Wallrus: The Open Town, an eight part collaborative mural/animation installation created over four years on the surface of a Light Rail construction barrier in Seattle’s Cal Anderson Park. Tomorrow, March 10, at 6:00 pm, local animator Amanda Moore will begin her work on the huge plywood wall—which will see artistic contributions from seven animators and one school group collaborating over time—during Capitol Hill’s Art Walk. The spectacle is free and open to the public and will include a vaudeville showman, old time music not to mention the chance to catch some truly innovative Seattle artist at work. During her 6 month tenure on the wall, Moore will be re-imagining flamboyant characters from Seattle’s turbulent past including a contortionist, a disgraced police chief and a vaudeville tycoon.
