In a generous effort to encourage the arts in Seattle, The Stranger (one of our newspaper weeklies) has decided to annually pick 5 winners from a cross section of categories (theater, visual arts, writing, filmaking and an arts organization) and award the lucky souls a cash award of no-strings attached $5000.
So for the second year in a row, The Stranger publishes its Genius Awards issue, featuring a profile on each of their five winners from 2004. This year’s Visual Arts winner, which I’ve already gabbed about, is Victoria Haven- you can find a nice profile on her here.
They also run a list of 3 to keep your eyes on in each category- this year’s V.A. picks are Tim Roda, Elizabeth Jameson (one of my favorites) and Brian Murphy who is kind of the man about town this week with two exhibits up.
