Synopsis

The 619 Western Avenue building in Seattle was the largest all-artist colony on the West Coast for thirty years. Originally a shipping warehouse, it was taken over by artists looking for large affordable space in 1981. Since then, it has blossomed into an underground cultural mecca for the independent art scene. On October 1, 2011, city officials stepped in, ordering the building’s demolition to make way for the massive Alaskan Way viaduct tunnel project scheduled to dig directly underneath the already-unstable structure.
