Urban Artworks

Urban ArtWorks is a Seattle-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for contemporary artists and local youth to work together to create public works of art. Our goal is to empower young people through professional opportunities in the arts. Since 1995, they've collaborated with more than 2,000 youth to bring art to public and private spaces throughout Seattle neighborhoods. Our pre-employment training and subsidized employment programs foster a renewed sense of self-esteem, self-motivation and self-sufficiency in the young persons they work with. As they expand our reach throughout the city, they look forward to continuing to help nurture strong communities by bringing contemporary public art to the streets of Seattle and beyond.
