Armed with pen and paper, a dozen artists roamed the floor of the Seattle/King County Clinic, a four-day pop-up clinic at the Seattle Center’s Key Arena that provided free medical, dental, and vision care to nearly 4,500 people last October. These were some of the most respected comics artists in the Pacific Northwest, and they were there to find out who these patients were, what experiences they had in trying to get healthcare day-to-day, and why so many were willing to wait for many hours at the Seattle Center–even overnight–for this clinic.

These stories came together as a series of short comic strips that will be exhibited at Monster: Art, Clothing & Gifts as our featured art show for March! Come view and read the many stories about the SKC Clinic during our opening reception and enjoy our weird food buffet!
