Still Lives Exhibit at WA Care Center

A unique collaboration between a visual artist and a nursing home has resulted in a provocative series of video portraitures about aging, time, image, memory, and relationships. Media artist Susie J Lee began the Still Lives project in April with residents of Washington Care Center (WCC), a nursing and long-term care facility in Southeast Seattle, to explore questions about what we hold onto and what we let go over the passage of time. A public reception will be held on Monday, August 9 from 2 – 4pm in the lobby of Washington Care Center, 2821 S Walden St.
