“Seattle as Collector” extends to City Hall, celebrates Office’s 40th anniversary

An extension of the exhibition at Seattle Art Museum Seattle as Collector: Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs Turns 40 is on display at City Hall through the end of the year.

The smaller-scale City Hall exhibition—Seattle as Collector at City Hall—continues the celebration of our agency’s 40th anniversary and features works by 49 artists collected by the city over the past four decades.

See artworks by regional favorites such as Judith Poxson Fawkes and Michael Schultheis, as well as national luminaries such as Richard Serra and Pat Steir.

City Curator and Collections Manager Deborah Paine selected the featured artworks from the city’s Portable Works Collection, which includes more than 2,800 artworks.
