Permanently Sited

The mission of Seattle's public art program is to integrate artworks and the ideas of artists into a variety of public settings. Artworks commissioned through the program should be an expression of our time, displayed in spaces accessible to community members and employees as they participate in city-related activity and engage in public life.

Major indoor and outdoor permanently sited and integrated artworks are found in prominent locations across the city. Supported by 1% of city construction budgets, public art appears in streets, parks, community centers, libraries, utility facilities and municipal offices.
