Students will learn the history behind Seattle’s vibrant public art collection and discover some of Seattle’s hidden gems. 

Seattle is credited with being the first city in the nation to have a ‘1% for the arts program’ that when combined with a tradition of private artworks being shown publicly, amount to a cityscape filled with art. 

We will explore the heritage of specific works, including artistic intent, audience reception and the role that public art serves in our urban landscape. Site visits include the Olympic Sculpture Park, campus, Seattle’s Central Library, Pike Place Market, and others. In addition, students will participate in making their own small scale public artworks.
