Seattle City Light has been a supporter of the city’s public art program, and its portable artwork collection since the city adopted a 1% for Art ordinance in 1973. The city’s Portable Works Collection is a rotating collection of artworks in all media including sculpture, site-specific commissions, painting, mixed media, prints, photography and textiles that are exhibited throughout city facilities. This fall the city is offering Spotlight Art Tours featuring artwork from City Light’s portable collection. Tours are led by Deborah Paine, Curator and Collections Manager at the Office of Arts & Culture, and will focus on artwork displayed at Seattle Municipal Tower.
