Thanks to our organizational partners:
I saw a “sneak preview” of this work while still in progress, almost two years ago. It is a stunningly beautiful, lovingly portrayed visually moving portrayal of tragedy! I have been picking up every stray bit of plastic and foil wrapper that I see potentially headed for a storm drain ever since I saw it. I look forward to finally seeing the final product. Chris is amazing!
Any chance you’ll be coming up to BC with your anniversary speaker series? I’d love to see Chris Jordan, but it’d be difficult to blast down to Seattle mid-week.
Hi, Ray. Unfortunately, no, the entire speaker series will take place here in Seattle.
