Purchases are chosen by juries of local and non-local art professionals who are charged with selecting artwork of high quality and diversity of expression for the City of Seattle 1% for Art Portable Works Collection.

The collection currently includes approximately 2,800 works exhibited on a two-year rotation basis throughout the public spaces in City of Seattle buildings. Artworks in the Portable Works Collection are also made available for exhibit loans to museums.

Seattle's 1% for Art program integrates artworks and the ideas of artists into a variety of public settings. Artworks commissioned and purchased through the program are an expression of our time, displayed in spaces accessible to community members as they participate in City-related activity and engage in public life.

The Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs strengthens our communities by managing one of the nation's most innovative public art programs; investing in art and culture for all residents through civic partnerships; connecting communities and artists to explore civic issues and ideas; supporting arts training for young people; promoting the arts' contribution to economic development; and advocating for the arts as part of our everyday lives. The 15-member Seattle Arts Commission, citizen volunteers appointed by the Mayor and City Council, supports the City agency.
