What’s better than a new greenway?
A greenway with art! Together with the Office of Arts and Culture, we’re proud to support seven emerging public artists through the Art Interruptions 2018 program. This year, artists will be featured through temporary art installations along the Rainier Valley Neighborhood Greenway between Rainier Beach Playfield and Othello Park. Check out the interactive web map to learn more about the artists and art locations!
About the Rainier Valley Neighborhood Greenway.
The Rainier Valley Neighborhood Greenway is a route over 6 miles long, stretching all the way from Mount Baker to Rainier Beach. The route includes small improvements like crosswalks, curb ramps, speed humps, stop signs, and pavement repairs that go a long way to make walking and biking around the neighborhood easier. While greenways connect neighborhoods physically, Art Interruptions connects neighborhoods through art. The temporary art installations along the route will showcase Rainier Valley in distinct ways, through the interpretations of each artist.
Schedule this in!
Join us, in partnership with the Office of Arts & Culture and Seattle Parks & Recreation, for a community event to learn more about the artists, their artwork, and the new greenway! We’ll have cold treats, prizes, bike safety tips, and more! Check out the flyer to learn more. #SeattleArtInterruptions
