We connect professional artists with developers and community groups to design, fabricate and install artworks in public and private spaces. We also coordinate neighborhood arts events and youth art workshops for both public and private educational institutions and other community organizations.
SEEDArts responds to a need for affordable, high quality, artist-made construction elements for a variety of in-fill, commercial, multi-unit residential and landscape development and/or renovation needs in Southeast Seattle.
