BLVD Gallery (pronounced "boulevard") is a new gallery devoted to the Urban Contemporary aesthetic and the rise of street art and graffiti culture, located in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood. Noticing a lack of venues for Seattle's vibrant urban art scene, gallerist Kirsten Anderson and curator Damion Hayes along with partners Brian Rauchenbach and Marcus Lalario, decided to join forces and create a full fledged gallery devoted to the burgeoning underground scene, and are dedicated to bringing national and international talent to the city as well as fostering the talented local artists working within the genre. More About the gallery on BLVD's website www.blvdart.com.
