Introducing our updated map and guide of downtown public art

map coverWe’re excited to announce our new and improved map and guide of public art in downtown Seattle.  Located on plazas and in streetscapes, parks, and civic and corporate buildings, public artworks enrich Seattle’s urban landscape. This guide features nearly 200 artworks in downtown Seattle from the collections of the city of Seattle, King County (administered by 4Culture), and other select organizations.

The map is divided into 10 areas: Seattle Center, South Lake Union, the Waterfront, Belltown, Denny Triangle, Pike Place Market, Central Business District, Pioneer Square, Chinatown/ International District and SoDo.

And there’s more art out there. The city’s collection encompasses more than 400 permanent public artworks throughout Seattle, and across King County there are more than 1,600 works from the county’s collection.

The maps will also be available at locations including downtown hotel lobbies, galleries, the Seattle Public Library, Central Branch, the Seattle Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, 4Culture and our office. Or download PDFs of the Seattle downtown public art map here. Or if you want a hard copy (or several for your group or organization), let us know.

Enjoy your exploration of our city through the lens of art!
