34.3 launch party photo

In December ARCADE celebrated the launch of issue 34.3, Undeniable: Edward Burtynsky's Photographs of a Changing World. Party guests mingled at Block 41, a soon-to-open event venue in a two-story former ice warehouse in Belltown, Seattle. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us, to our event sponsors, our auction donors and bidders, our volunteers, and to all who contributed to this issue.

Thank you to Reflect for DJing the party and to Michael Stearns of Hybrid3 Design Studio for taking event photos!
