Congratulations to Paul Rucker!

We know we’re saying this belatedly, but we believe it’s never too late for a Congratulations. So!

We here at HONK! Fest West would like to just say a public congrats to Mr. Rucker, who is our liaison at the Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs. Or was, rather, as he recently took leave of his position after winning a Creative Capital Grant to work on a project he’s titled Recapitulation.

Huge thanks to Mr. Rucker for all his help over the years. We can’t wait to see this project in person. Congrats, sir!
