QUEEN OF GRUNGE: Portraits of Tina Bell

The M. Rosetta Hunter and Seattle Central College will continue to celebrate the legacy of Tina Bell in the coming years. We are planning a small mural in the EDIC office, a larger exterior mural, and finally we are in the early stages of planning a statue of her on the south lawn across the street from the Jimi Hendrix statue on Broadway.

The M. Rosetta Hunter gallery at Seattle Central in partnership with EDIC presents QUEEN OF GRUNGE: Portraits of Tina Bell. Do you know about early grunge pioneer Tina Bell?   Born and raised in Seattle, Bell was the front woman for the local band Bam Bam. She is now credited for shaping the grunge sound, but until recently she has been woefully unsung.  Help us celebrate the legacy of this  local hero.
