23rd and Jackson Project
On the corner of 23rd and Jackson in Seattle stood a Central Area staple, the Red apple Promenade. Having grown up in the area, Lawrence was very familiar with the history and significance of one of the only supermarkets in the area. Though saddened at seeing the supermarket go, Lawrence was very honored to be included in Vulcan's project to encapsulate the history of the area and present togetherness throughout the community. The art project that will be displayed around the construction site will be 22 panels representing the displacement and gentrification of the area. The pieces were created through Lawrence and four schools in the area (Washington Middle School, Seattle Girls School, Thurgood Marshall Elementary, and Leschi Elementary). The students created their pieces based off of the question "what does culture and the central area mean to you and your family?"
