There’s a pretty unique art gallery hidden in Seattle that you probably don’t know about. It’s a “Black-Owned, artist-led art gallery and neighborhood cultural institution” and trust us, you’re going to want to visit. Ready to check out a real piece of Seattle? Let’s take a look at Martyr Sauce.
Martyr Sauce was founded in 2012 by artist and curator Tariqa Waters and is located in the historic arts district of Pioneer Square. Now there’s a new part of this iconic space that you need to see because it’s truly larger than life. And that is the Martyr Sauce Pop Art Museum. Right now, it’s been transformed into a bubble gum pink space filled with massive handmade reproductions of objects from the ’60s TV show Julia.

Now the space’s future will most likely be very multi-use. Waters wants to commission and encourage artists to use the space. The beginning of that is a collaboration with Tacoma artist Kenji Hamai Stoll and Clyde Petersen. Both artists have work currently in one of the space’s galleries. And both shows are eye-catching and immersive experiences that you should definitely check out.
