I’ve worked for a Seattle public art commission, years ago.

Interviewee: Gregory Sholette

But I also wonder if the city of Seattle itself didn’t also have something to do with it as well. They have a long tradition of fairly progressive public policy. Or had one in the past at least. Many years ago, sometime around 1996, I served as a juror for this Seattle public art commission selecting artworks. I presume I was brought in specifically because they wanted to get away from just plopping down a sculpture at some public place.
