"The inimitable Tariqa Waters, curator of Pioneer Square’s Martyr Sauce Pop Art Museum, hosts an unconventional talk show. With her signature question, “What’s in your lunchbox?”, Waters probes the minds of Seattle dancers, tattoo artists, musicians, and restaurateurs to explore the joys of their pasts and their loves of today." -Northwest Film Forum
“Reader, I’m obsessed with this show. Rather than depict Seattle in the expectedly dreary blues and greens, Waters highlights the confectionary underbelly of the Emerald City. Vibrant pinks, slime greens, lush reds, and soulful lavenders color in her vision of Seattle as she traipses through Pioneer Square or brings guests into her street-level gallery, Martyr Sauce Pop Art Museum (MS PAM)” ~ Jas Keimig -The Stranger
