Twenty local artists are transforming empty window displays and public spaces throughout downtown Seattle into multimedia galleries through a partnership between local artists, the Downtown Seattle Association, Lusio Light and downtown property owners.

The series, themed “Shine On Seattle,” grew out of the success of the recent “Shine a Light” storefront art project and has expanded to include a number of public spaces. Each piece is inspired by the artist’s personal interpretation of the theme.

The activation is designed to enrich the public realm while elevating Seattle’s creative talent. Installations are currently on display in storefronts and other locations throughout downtown’s Retail Core, Belltown and Pioneer Square neighborhoods.
