A Love Letter to Seattle - Vanishing Seattle Pop Up Extended through February.

January 04, 2018

At the end of November, we launched a Pop-Up Shop in our Busted Knuckle Gallery space with popular social media project, #VanishingSeattle, which documents the displaced and disappearing institutions, small businesses, homes, and communities of Seattle. It also serves as a love letter to the history and cultures that gave our city its soul.

While we originally planned on concluding the Pop-Up at the end of the year, due to the tremendous popularity of the display, we've decided to extend the Pop Up through February!

Check out these highlights and drop by our Pike Place Market store to see it in person!

Over the course of the past month, the Pop-Up has drawn thousands of visitors who have come to read and share their own Seattle Places Loved and Lost at the interactive display.

Evolving into a sort of collective, patchwork love letter to Seattle, the 15' graphic display is full of heartfelt moments, treasured locations, and memorable times spent in the city.

Visitors answer the prompt, "What do you miss about Seattle?"

Whether you're a longtime Seattlelite, a recent transplant, or a visitor just stopping through, the Pop-Up is an engaging insight into the soul of the city and the people who love it.

Stop by the Busted Knuckle Gallery before the end of February to show your Seattle love and pick up exclusive Vanishing Seattle merchandise - featuring the artwork of local street artists No Touching Ground and BeSo206! (Some products will also be available at www.eighthgeneration.com under the Vanishing Seattle Collection).

Revenues from the shop will support an upcoming Vanishing Seattle documentary film project.

As you skim this list - which includes everything from nation media features to hyper local service projects - keep in mind that our company was founded when Louie Gong (Nooksack) started drawing on shoes while sitting on his living room floor.  A few years later, we are proud to be dynamic proof that a small number of dedicated people can shake up old industries while still creating new opportunities - and physical spaces - for the next generation of artists and entrepreneurs.

When Louie walked into the Navigation Center, a 75 bed shelter here in Seattle, he saw 20,000 square feet of bare, white, institutional walls...and a problem that Eighth Generation might be suited to lend a hand with. So over the course of several months, Eighth Generation set out to recruit local organizations, small businesses and local artists to work with us to transform the Center into a place more conducive to physical and spiritual renewal.
