In the aftermath of the 6.8 earthquake that rocked the Northwest, the ArtStar Project brings DESTRUCTION/CONSTRUCTION to the Li’l Red Shack Gallery. Evolving over a five-week period, this project encompasses performance, installation, and collaboration. The show culminates in a miniature reconstruction of Seattle’s 1st Avenue in the gallery space. The ruble that littered Pioneer Square after the earthquake inspired the reproduction of thousands of miniature bricks that over the course of the show will become 1st Avenue again.

Cycles of destruction and construction outline history be it from natural disasters, at the hands of humans, or technological progress. The bricks serve to remind all of us, of the fragility and impermance of our history. Individuals from the ArtStar Project, Northwest artists, and members of the community will collaboratively create this installation, which will evolve over the four weeks of the show. This exhibition responds to the impact that the earthquake had and will continue to have on the community.

The opening reception is April 5th from 6 pm – 9 pm with performances and live music. The closing reception is May 12th from 6 pm – 9 pm with performances, music, and destruction. The ArtStar Project and Li’l Red Shack Gallery opened this past November with a mission to create a space where the arts and artists can flourish, to establish an artist driven gallery, and to extend the arts into the greater community.
