Is It ART or Is It POWDERED SUGAR?

Based on the belief that how a person respond to art is every bit as important as the art itself, A. K. "Mimi" Allin sifted a powdered sugar line from one end of Art Walk (Seattle Center) to the other (Pioneer Square), for Seattle's First Thursday Art Walk on 4 December 2008. She challenged art walkers to involve themselves in the process of making art. Allin is underlining, visually & performatively, what it is that makes Art Walk a thing-- it's the audience, it's you!

She handed out prompts designed to challenge artwalkers, as they wandered the galleries, to see more, feel more & respond creatively.

An Art Walk Enhancing Tool
- Stand before a work of art and compose a poem.
- Stand before a work of art and make a sketch.
- Title an untitled piece.
- Name of an artwork that made you smile.
- Name of an artwork you could have done better yourself.

Completed cards should be mailed to – A. K. “Mimi” Allin, 4714 Ballard Ave NW #148, Seattle WA 98107 or dropped off that evening at All City Coffee, 125 Prefontaine Pl. S. in Pioneer Square.

I wonder what it will turn out to be -- art, or powdered sugar?
