New Art Acquisitions: July 2019 to the present

The following new Washington State Arts Commission (ArtsWA) public art projects were completed during the 2020 fiscal year (July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020). They are located across Washington State, from Bellingham to Kennewick and Colton in SE Washington, to Belfair on the Kitsap Peninsula, to Spokane.

The Art in Public Places (AIPP) program facilitates the acquisition, placement, and stewardship of artwork in state-funded building projects throughout Washington. The Washington State Legislature established the AIPP program in 1974 to acquire artwork for K-12 public schools, colleges, universities, and state agencies, funded by ½ of 1 percent of the state’s portion of construction costs. Today, the State Art Collection includes nearly 5,000 artworks that are located where people study, work, and live. ArtsWA acts as administrator and caretaker of the State Art Collection—an incredibly diverse group of artworks that connects Washington’s communities.
