Celeste Cooning: A Brighter Day
This weekend is your last chance to see A Brighter Day, an installation of cut paper by Celeste Cooning at 510 Maynard in Seattle’s International District.
The piece was completed as part of Storefronts Seattle, an organization responsible for creating temporary exhibition spaces in vacant storefronts throughout the city.
Since graduating from the University of Washington’s MFA program in 2007, Celeste has quietly completed a number of jaw-droppingly ornate installations in storefronts and for private events all over the place, including a collaborative project last December with Matthew Parker, Sam Trout and Paul D. McKee in a dead space on Broadway and Republican in Capitol Hill. (Many more photos here.)
Last summer, you might have spotted her installation Celebration and Fanfare gently looming over crowds in Occidental Park.
