Artist at the Center

Did you know?

Seattle Center thrives on partnerships, and we’ve just launched a new program in partnership with Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, Uptown Arts & Culture Coalition and Climate Pledge Arena. Artists at the Center offers a year-long slate of performances featuring creative up-and-coming artists to commemorate the Arena’s inaugural year. The free pop-ups at Seattle Center run through September 2022. Artists at the Center hosts music, dance, theatre and multi-disciplinary performances, presented by individual artists and performance groups based in the Puget Sound region. The 29 artists and groups were selected through a program designed to offer campus visitors a surprising and delightful arts and cultural experience as they encounter the performances on their way through the campus.
