About the Artist

Andrew Peterson (Seattle) received 2009 GAP Award funding to go towards materials purchases and to cover exhibition expenses in a collaborative drawing project. As an artist, he strives to create an art practice that is both inclusive and collaborative in nature. The Interactor is simultaneously a drawing project, an open-ended social inquiry, and an opportunity for at-risk youth to be directly involved in contemporary art. Through his involvement at Sanctuary Art Center in Seattle’s U-District, Andrew has come to know several street-involved youth. He intends to invite these individuals to work with him on a future Interactor project.
