The Louder the Sun at Michael Peck Space

On March 20, 2010, I made my way to the self-proclaimed Center of the Universe for the opening of an exhibition of works by Noah Grussgott, Ben Waterman and Robert Yoder. The show is creatively mounted in the capacious Michael Peck Space, once an Odd Fellow Lodge and more recently the former location of Seattle’s gone, but not forgotten, Empty Space Theater. DJ Funkscribe provided the event’s rhythm.
