Megan Kelso’s incredible public art “memory rail” is now installed at Climate Pledge Arena at Seattle Center! “Crow Commute” is an 85-foot long comic story of Seattle, etched in steel, and meant to be read from the center out.


Read about our local comic artists responding to the disaster of COVID-19 in this article in the Seattle Times. Featuring Amy Camber (below), Robyn Jordan, and Marie Bouassi.

In 2019, Short Run was awarded an art show at City Hall Galleries in the center of downtown. “Comix for All” presented 14 local artists whose multiple styles and subjects demonstrated the flexibility of the comix medium. The Seattle Review of Books said of this show, “Together, the works create a kind of anthology of the modern state of alternative cartooning, exploded out onto the halls of local government.” 

In 2018, Short Run donated their collection of over 1,000 mini-comics and zines to The Vera Project, an incredible all-ages, volunteer-run art & music venue.

We also co-sponsored the national, group exhibition “Comix Body” at the Kittredge Gallery at the University of Puget Sound. The exhibit considers how bodies move through the world – as sensitive skin, as vulnerable meat, as human and as animal. More about the exhibition here.
