What artworks from the city’s Portable Works Collection would our staff choose to be in an exhibition? Find out in the exhibition Staff Picks, on display at Seattle Municipal Tower Gallery through March 31.

Staff Picks features 24 artworks including sculptures, drawings and paintings by artists such as Glen Alps, Meng Huang, Hugo Ludeña and Charlotte Meyer. See the complete list of artists here.

See artworks such as Peter Ivanoff’s How the West Was Won and Lost, a drawing of shopping carts circling like covered wagons. Huang built a face from found objects including hubcaps and gloves in his sculpture Take a Look. Justin Gibbens created an Audubon-like illustration of a fantastical creature in his Double-headed Red Tail.

The Portable Works Collection contains more than 2,800 artworks managed by the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
