Martyr Sauce in the heart of the historic arts district of Pioneer Square.
SEATTLE — Founded in 2012 by artist and curator Tariqa Waters, Martyr Sauce is an underground art gallery and cultural institution. This gallery is popular for creating projects base on pop culture with a big message.
“I take things that often marginalize me as a black woman and I reshape those things. The point is to not qualify my art as Black art, it’s American art,” said Waters.
She crosses boundaries between pop culture art forms and projects which feature visual art highlighting issues of equity.
