Arts & Culture

Seattle Arts: The unconventional intersection of culture, fun, and quirkiness.

Seattle’s reputation is one of a great arts city, and while we are rich in classics like Opera, Ballet and Symphony, the creative community also has a a reputation for innovation and new approaches. For instance, the public art collection features more than 400 works that enliven public spaces like parks, bridges, and streets. Public art program artists design everything from building components to manhole covers. And Seattle isn’t just known for visual art. After all, this is home to Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Our Seattle Symphony Orchestra stays on trend with adventurous contemporary works. The Pacific Northwest Ballet embraces current choreographers that explore new expression in dance, and Seattle boasts more than 140 producing theatre companies.  As the cultural center of the Northwest, Seattle’s arts scene offers something for everyone.
