Attending Art School in Seattle

“The Emerald City” is the birthplace of the Space Needle, Starbucks, and, of course, grunge music. The sounds of Seattle, however, are not limited to the rifts of Nirvana and Pearl Jam. The Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Kenny G., and even the all important Sir Mix-a-Lot have contributed to the Seattle sound, though some more significantly than others.  The art scene, consequently, is also diverse in both medium and subject, contributing to a broadminded city that prides itself on self-expression and self-awareness. Among the more notable attractions, the Seattle Art Museum is the most prestigious of venues and is also currently closed until January, 2007 for a much needed, massive expansion that will provide seventy percent more gallery space. Other points of interest include the Henry Art Gallery (Washington’s first public art museum), the Frye Art Museum, the Seattle Asian Art Museum, and the contemporary arts center, Consolidated Works. In addition to these large and largely funded museums, Seattle is also known for its artist owned and operated galleries and collectives that wish to exhibit, and celebrate, a variety of art forms while avoiding the negative trappings that so often come with commercialization. Some examples of these include Shift Studio, Soil Art Gallery, La Familia, and Crawl Space gallery. Moreover, the Seattle Public Art Program has ensured that residents are exposed to the arts every day with myriad sculptures, such as the troll under the Aurora Bridge, Henry Moore’s “Vertebrae”, or even Vladimir Lenin “strolling” in Freemont. Finally, the list of events involving visual arts is so extensive, an art student choosing to study in Seattle will find something to do almost every day of the week. For example, the gallery strolls typically found in most cities occurring on the First Thursday or Friday of every month, occur on the first, second, third, and last Thursday of every month, and also on some Fridays and Saturdays throughout the greater metropolitan area. Additionally, many of the aforementioned museums include student exhibitions as part of their yearly programs. To add to this, organizations such as Art Patch and Allied Arts of Seattle have been working to garner more support for local artists and art programs, the benefits of which are becoming more and more evident throughout the city. An art student, with coffee and umbrella in hand, has a wealth of resources in the city of Seattle, making it a wonderful place to study.
