Facebook started an Artist in Residence (AIR) Program in 2012 at their San Francisco headquarters. It was so successful that it has expanded to other offices, including Seattle. Since last year, we have been hearing about School alums who have created work for this program. Then, on March 21, CityArts posted an article profiling the program in Seattle and including numerous photos. We learned through that piece of another alum who has participated.

Here are the alums with Seattle projects:

Evan Blackwell

If you want to follow the Facebook AIR Program, you may do so on Facebook and Instagram. They have albums on Facebook for many of the other projects in Seattle and at other offices.
