Change of Seasons

Edited by Roger Downey

The only constant in life is change, but sometimes changes bunch together in ways that make it seem that one time's passing and another coming on. Since people make art, changes of leadership at several seminal organizations this year guarantee that the Seattle arts scene is undergoing such a shift. And sometimes absence of change can seem just as disturbing; consider the San Andreas Fault, silently accumulating more destructive tension every day. In a number of areas, Seattle's art scene is rocking on a cusp, with big changes inevitably in the works; and there are other areas where the first shoe's yet to drop. But smooth or bumpy, it's bound to be an interesting ride.
