West Seattle’s first Little Free Art Gallery!

That’s Mindi Katzman with what she says is a West Seattle first! She sent the photos and report:

West Seattle now has its own Little Free Art Gallery, set up by me and installed yesterday. The idea is to promote a little cheer, delight, and fun…and of course, art.

Anyone can drop off a small piece, either two- or three-dimensional (potters – think small seconds or firsts; painters – small pieces etc.) This is for everyone and anyone. Take a piece, leave a piece, or both!!! But PLEASE, do not take the figures, easels, or bench.

This was possible thanks to the efforts of Ken Cermak, who built it; Brian Mooney, who installed the post; Natalie Dupille, who cheered me on and helped install the gallery; and Emme Dupille – who contributed the first piece. And of course, Stacy Milrany, Milrany.com, who has made the concept take off. I look forward to seeing what comes and goes.

The Little Free Art Gallery is in Morgan Junction, 38th Avenue SW, between Morgan and Graham.

    I am an artist and printmaker and would love to have one of these in front of my house; how can I get in touch with people to help me with building and installing one? I tried the web link for Milraney.com, but it didn’t seem to be working. I just love this idea so much!

    So exciting to have this in West Seattle!  Will have to check it out. Saw the story about the first one in Queen Anne on King 5 Evening.  (WSB, I think it’s Stacy, not Tracey)
