V2 closed in December 2016 after a 10 month run as a temporary pop-up art space. Initiated by Capitol Hill Arts District and managed by Velocity, in partnership with One Reel, V2 was made possible with the support of the Seattle Office of Arts + Culture, Legacy Development, Pemco Insurance, and a community of generous individuals and local businesses. SEE what we made HAPPEN together >>

Thank you everyone! It was a wild ride that supported 100s of artists + community groups welcoming 1000s of visitors to events, community forums, projects + opportunities.
