New Art Acquisitions: July 2020 to June 2021

The following new Washington State Arts Commission (ArtsWA) public art projects were completed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. They are located across Washington State, from Quincy and Moses Lake in Central Washington, to Pullman in Eastern Washington, to Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula, to the Burke Museum in Seattle, and places in between. They also include several curated collections.

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.
