Our director Vincent Kitch celebrates 50 years of arts in Seattle and The Next Fifty. We’re seeking artists to create temporary art installations along Greenwood Avenue North and the Central Waterfront. We’re also seeking an artist to develop artwork for the Lower Mapes Creek Restoration Project in Rainier Beach. We’re opening a new Cultural Facilities Program to award one-time funding for urgent-need capital projects. We present six temporary artworks that illustrate environmental sustainability for the 50th anniversary of the World’s Fair. The artist group Rebar lights up King Street Station’s new Jackson Plaza. Get an update on the city’s arts and cultural space development initiatives at a brown-bag session. And learn about potential risks in the art studio at a free workshop.
