Get angry! About art, that is. The new and permanent MadArt space in South Lake Union (325 Westlake Ave N, #101, Seattle WA 98109) opened in May as a space for artists who have big work. The workspace made its debut during the South Lake Union Art Walk, an event it will continue to be involved with each month.

MadArt was founded in 2009 by Alison Milliman in order to help people discover art in unexpected ways. MadArt’s mission is “to support emerging artists in our community, to bring art into our lives in unexpected ways, and to create community involvement in the arts.”

The space will be home to resident artist John Grade as well as feature works by many other artists. MadArt’s expansive studio will allow artists to create and display large-scale works among street-level windows and an inviting atmosphere.

From September 13th through October 25th, MadArt presents Mad Campus at the University of Washington. The UW campus will host installations of public art throughout its most visited areas. Students and visitors can witness the installation process of these temporary pieces, connecting artists to the community. Click here for a detailed Mad Campus map.
