New Art: July 2021 to June 2022

The following new Washington State Arts Commission (ArtsWA) public art projects were completed from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022. They are located across Washington State, from Silverdale in Western Washington on Puget Sound, to Royal City in Central Washington, to Okanogan in North Central Washington, to Tacoma, Yakima, and Seattle, and places in between. They also include three curated collections for elementary schools.

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 more than 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.
