Public Art Walking Tour in Seattle

In 1973, Seattle became the first city in the United States to pass the 1 Percent for Art ordinance. The program ensures that one percent of funds allocated for a city's improvement projects go toward the purchase and installation of public art. Today, Seattle celebrates its reputation as a city that stresses the importance of innovation, culture, and creativity. By offering opportunities for the community to enjoy art on roadways, parks, bridges, libraries, and other public spaces, citizens can find enrichment in their daily lives and support visual artists. Seattle has 400 permanent works and nearly 3,000 portable works brilliantly scattered around the city. This post shares some of the city's favorites pieces and public art locations.
