Seattle Center is pleased to collaborate with Seattle Office of Arts & Culture to bring Seattle Center Sculpture Walk to campus as part of our Temporary Art Program. Yearly funding is provided by Climate Pledge Arena and Seattle Kraken.

Enjoy Seattle Center Sculpture Walk on our grounds, mid-August through end of 2022.
These four artworks were developed through Seattle Office of Arts & Culture Art Interruptions program. A cohort of artists attended a year-long Public Art Bootcamp training program, which resulted in four artists receiving commissions at Seattle Center.

2022 Artist Roster:

Nikita Ares -  mural at Seattle Center Skate Plaza

Matthew Dockery - ironworks on Fisher Pavilion Roof

May Kytonen  - fiber art at Seattle Center Monorail / Armory Bridge

Micah McCarty - carved wooden sculpture in trees by Mural Amphitheatre
