Seattle Public Utlities, Fresh Perspectives 2019, Part 3 of 3

April 4, 2019 - June 28, 2019

Fresh Perspectives brings the youth voice to the City of Seattle's Civic Collection. Unlike a typical panel consisting of arts professionals, all the artworks in this show were chosen by five local high schoolers.

This iteration represents about a third of the total artworks and highlights the diversity of what was chosen - from photos and paintings to sculptures and mosaics - this group chose a wide-ranging variety of art that adds to our already robust public collection.

Curated by Blake Haygood, Curator and Collections Manager.

Five Big Things

Five Big Things

Five large artworks from the City’s Civic Collection. Even though they are part of the "portable" collection, these pieces might have more in common with permanently sited art. Most of these pieces require a long uninterrupted wall and several need plenty of floor space – increasingly rare commodities in our city buildings. July 9 - September 28, 2018.
