Bumbershoot announces visual arts programs

Bumbershoot, which takes place September 1-3, will celebrate “The Past, The Present and The Future” in its visual arts exhibits this year, with a nod to Seattle Center’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World’s Fair.

“Skyward,” by Shelly Leavans and Jana Brevick, is a combination of sculptural pieces, site-specific installation, video and interactive works conflating the fair’s vision of the future and the cartoon series, “The Jetsons.”

Other exhibits include “This Is Glass”; “Now,” a neon sculpture by Dylan Neuwirth; a tribute to plein air painter Christopher Martin Hoff curated by Beth Sellars; “Elvistravanganza,” a celebration of Elvis Presley’s appearance at the fair; and the SAM exhibit “Record Store.”

This year’s Bumbershoot posters are designed by John Vogl and James Martin.

Bumbershoot also announced additional performers in this year’s musical lineup:

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Best Coast, Missy Higgins, Cosmetics, The Miracles Club and Lights From Space. The festival will also feature a heavy metal showcase feaeturing Eyehategod, Prong, Black Breath and The Spittin’ Cobras.
