Free T-shirts (visualize summer) was performed by Kira Burge and Tyrah Dunning on July 23, 2011. Sixty t-shirts were screen printed with the phrase "VISUALIZE SUMMER" and distributed to the Seattle public to instigate a conversation addressing cultural and environmental issues related to global climate change.
