SEEDArts Public Art Program commissions original public artworks for both the private and public domain, produces youth art residencies, workshops and classes, and partners with community arts/cultural groups in producing community art projects and events.
Commission of original artworks: As an integral part of SEED's overall mission, SEEDArts Publci Art Program 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 and beyond. We offer professional guidance and project management in the planning, commission, fabrication, installation and maintenance of art in public places to private developers, community groups and schools.
