What makes these artists geniuses? You'll have to read the summer issue of A&P—out June 11—to find out. We'll be doing another series of interviews with Genius Award finalists at the Frye Art Museum in August and September, and the Genius Awards are October 18 at the Moore Theatre. With other amazing performers and the Seattle Rock Orchestra! And it's free! Mark your calendar!
