The Duwamish Residency was created in 2012 by Sue Danielson and Fiona McGuigan as a hometown-based artist residency on the shores of the Duwamish River in Seattle. Each summer about a dozen artists spend about 64 hours over 8 consecutive days working together at various spots on the river. For most, interacting with this diverse, beautiful, but polluted waterway is a creative stimulus and an opportunity to increase awareness and support for the ongoing superfund clean-up. Here you can still see salmon leaping out of the current among loaded barges topped with lacy cranes; and tree-covered hills fringe the horizon above huge concrete silos. Our residency experience has been considerably enriched since 2013 through access to the Georgetown Steam Plant and, in 2016, the Lafage cement plant where we have been permitted to make art inside these majestic industrial structures that no longer serve the function for which they were built in the last century.
