Since I am a lover of lists and organization, I thought I would put together a listing of Seattle galleries that feature urban contemporary art. I'm sure there are more galleries in the area that would fit under this genre, and if you would like to add to this list, please let me know by posting a comment.
Had to update this list as of 2/10/10 due to the unfortunate closure of galleries previously on this list.
