    A dozen comics artists captured stories from patients at the Seattle/King County Clinic, a giant, pop-up healthcare event held at Seattle Center in October 2016. Their comics journalism pieces draw attention to the diversity of people facing challenges with everyday healthcare access, and question the future of healthcare with the possible dismantling of the Affordable Care Act. Timed with the Capitol Hill Art Walk, the comic strips will be exhibited at Cupcake Royale. (the art exhibit will be on display until the end of April)
    Featured artists: Jose Alaniz, Owen Curtsinger, Eroyn Franklin, Kelly Froh, Tatiana Gill, Roberta Gregory, Robyn Jordan, Megan Kelso, David Lasky, Meredith Li-Vollmer, Pat Moriarity, and ET Russian.
