Gateways Public Art

Olympia Crossings plan cover

About the Project

The Olympia Arts Commission and Olympia Planning Commission have developed a Master Plan for placing unique public art at eight major "gateways" throughout the City. This accomplishes several goals:

  • Places public art deep into Olympia’s neighborhoods
  • Contributes to a sense of community identity
  • Introduces place making elements that help to define and bring together different areas of our community

"Olympia Crossings - An Art Plan for City Gateways" is the blueprint by which to move forward on each of the identified gateways, presenting overall concepts and themes, location and cost analysis and prioritization. Please note, this is not a design or fabrication opportunity, but concept only.
