ARTS releases 2015 Report to Community

As we look forward to 2017, it’s also time to look back at our accomplishments. In this case, it’s looking way back, at our accomplishments of 2015, as we finally get around to publishing our 2015 Report to Community. We’re a little late this year, but I hope you take the time to poke around. You’ll find maps of all our public art and activations, and photos of all the artworks that were installed. You’ll also find a really handy map of every grant recipient (nearly 500!) – showing the program, a description, photos in some cases, and a link to their website. We think it’s a great tool to see where the investments of the City are going – where there are holes and what trends we’re observing. http://www.seattlearts.report/

There’s also a bunch of great photos of our partners, descriptions of the programs we launched and ran, and a handy guide to staff and resources.

Let us know what you think – what kind of information would you like to see reported here? What’s useful or necessary for you? How should we be evaluating our success? We look forward to hearing from you. And we pledge that our New Year’s Resolution for next year is being prepared to share this with you way earlier next year!
