Public Art

Some of our most beloved public artworks include Jack Mackie's "Dance Steps" along Broadway on Capitol Hill, Isamu Noguchi's "Black Sun" in Volunteer Park, and Richard Beyer's much-decorated "Waiting for the Interurban" sculpture in Fremont. And of course, Seattle is often called the nation's glass art capital, and it's easy to see why. From the stunning chandeliers at Benaroya Hall to the Seaforms at the Seattle Aquarium, world-famous artist Dale Chihuly is just one of the well known glass artists whose work graces public spaces in Seattle. Our historic Pioneer Square district celebrates art on the first Thursday of each month, with the city's oldest and largest neighborhood art walk. Or consider one of our self-guided public art walking tours to ensure that you don't miss anything!
