Murals on display through June 27 at Seattle Center, Sea-Tac International Airport, Woodland Park Zoo and Westlake Park
SEATTLE – To celebrate the countdown to the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games, five 26-foot-long murals designed by Special Olympics athletes will be displayed throughout Seattle. A total of six murals were designed and created under the guidance of Seattle-based artist Catherine Mayer. Inspired by Pacific Northwest themes and iconic Seattle locations, each mural features individual works of art created by the athletes that Mayer then collaged into large-scale art pieces.
For a limited time, the five murals will be displayed in key locations across Seattle, giving the community the opportunity to enjoy the murals before they are displayed at the USA Games. A sixth mural was displayed earlier in June at Bellevue Square.
Holland America Line is the Presenting Sponsor of the 2018 USA Games Art Murals.
