(On the Capitol Hill Red Wall, on John Street at Broadway)

For the third year in a row, Sound Transit has partnered with the Capitol Hill Chamber to shine a light on neighborhood non-profits that make life brighter for everyone on Capitol Hill throughout the year.

A lighting ceremony will be held at

in conjunction with Capitol Hill ArtBlitz
Meet at the Capitol Hill Chamber office (1641 Nagle Place, next to Cal Anderson Park) and promenade to the STars on Broadway site at E John St and Broadway.  (Lanterns encouraged.)

STart, Sound Transit art program, in conjunction with the Capitol Hill Chamber and the red wall curator - DK Pan, pair an artist from the Red Wall temporary art roster with a local organization to create a custom STar inspired by the non-profit.  These STars will stay lit on the Capitol Hill Link light rail construction wall through the dark winter nights.

Greg Boudreau

Greg Boudreau has installed 7 panels of his series on cityscapes on the Red Wall. Each painting is a laborious process involving multiple layers of hand-cut stencils and aerosol paint, created from manipulated photographs taken by the artist. The panels are constructed from re-claimed wood. For more info on the artist's work -
