New Art: Back to School

The following recent Washington State Arts Commission (ArtsWA) public art projects are all located at K-12 public schools across the state. They were each installed between July 2021 and the present. (This selection does not include 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 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.
