The story begins: “The vacant lot at 23rd Avenue and East Union Street transformed into an interactive art installation in just over a week in late June, and remains up through August. The Corner: 23rd and Union, the creation of KUOW producer Jenny Asarnow, mounts large-scale photographic portraits of Central District residents who stand amid spray-painted messages like, ‘This is a powerful corner,’ ‘What do you remember?’ and a phone number: 877-R23UNION. Call the number and hear local hip-hop artist Yirim Seck inviting you to record and/or listen to reflections about the neighborhood. One elderly woman recalls being mugged, then adds, ‘We’re all in this together.'”
