Welcome to Seattle Center
Enjoy four Temporary Art Installations on Seattle Center grounds, now through end of 2021.
These works were developed through Seattle Office of Arts & Culture Art Interruptions program. Artists attended a year-long Public Art Bootcamp training program, which resulted in these four commissioned artworks.
Seattle Center Sculpture Walk is funded by Seattle Center 1% for Art funds, and administered by Office of Arts & Culture.
