In the next several weeks, we will celebrate our region’s museums and cultural institutions in conjunction with the American Alliance of Museums annual conference in Seattle. More than 55 organizations have created special programming and admission offers – you can check it out here, at www.museumweeknw.com. In addition to special offers around the region, the Office of Arts & Culture has created a number of free tours of Seattle’s noted public art collection for the public to enjoy. We hope you will join us for a glimpse into some of the art that makes our city so special. Tours will be approximately an hour in length, and cover the following themes.
Tour of Totems, led by Office of Arts & Culture conservation tech, Tiffany Hedrick
WA State Convention Center Art Tour, led by Office of Arts & Culture curator, Deborah Paine
South Lake Union Art Tour, led by Public Art Advisory Committee member Kurt Keifer and Pablo Schugurensky, both of META ARTE
