Indeed, that seems to be the case. A friend who works for Seattle’s Windham Hill attended a New York press screening. Windham Hill represents Mark Is- cham, whose score for Trouble in Mind was highly praised. Afterwards, the critics were asking each other where it had been filmed—-Detroit, Atlanta were suggested. When he said Seattle they wouldn’t believe him. “Nobody shoots in Seattle,” they said. He reminded them of the monorail, the Space Needle and the rain, and some finally agreed, reluctantly. Clearly no one in Seattle got rich or famous on the project. Even Andy Keating, whose work featured most prominently in the film has not “yet had the ripples return to him” from his big splash in the art world. But he termed the experience “a lark” to which he’d gladly consent again. One pleasant irony was seeing the Art Museum’s walls covered by work from artists who are unlikely to be in a regular Museum show for years to come. To be fair, the Seattle Art Museum does own a few paintings by some of these artists, but it has never shown such a compelling assemblage as Smool/ Legler’s. Alan Rudolph, who has used art prominently in previous films, showed particularly good intuition in using so much local work, most from painters, the strongest of Seattle’s many art communities. Even if no one’s life was changed by having work included, it certainly didn’t hurt. Art is a lottery and at least this time the dollar was paid to those entering it. If nothing else comes of this epic, it was still the best show of recent Seattle art work this city has seen. WHAT SORT OF PEOPLE READ CLINTON STREET QUARTERLY?
