Art at the Convention Center

The permanent collection consists of gifts and long term loans from museums, galleries, corporations, foundations, private collectors and artists.

The Public Art Program

The Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) public art program, perhaps the largest of its kind in the nation, was established to provide an environment that enriches the experience of all who visit the meeting facility. With well over 100 works on display, art has been a popular feature since the facility opened in 1988. Initially, art was incorporated into the original building design with assistance from the state's Percent for the Arts Program. Since then, due to a commitment to provide civic benefits to our community, the WSCC has offered an ever-changing collection, readily accessible at no charge to meeting attendees and the general public.
