Walk down any Seattle street, turn the corner, and you’re likely to discover art enhancing the city’s parks, plazas, and waterfront piers. From cedar totem poles to high-tech video installations, the downtown area alone has more than 350 works of art for all to enjoy.

How did Seattle amass such a vast collection? What does it tell us about our city?

Join Jim Rupp, author of Art in Seattle’s Public Spaces: From SoDo to South Lake Union, as he weaves through over 100 years of urban art collecting.
