Arts & Culture

Seattle’s art scene is where you can discover the city’s cultured, fun, and playful personality.

We have a reputation as one of the greatest arts cities in the world—after all, this is the home of music legends like Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and Pearl Jam. Dancers, artists, musicians, and writers showcase their craft in new and unexpected ways. Seattle Symphony plays the classics and puts adventurous twists on famous soundtracks. Museums, galleries, and nontraditional spaces showcase art from old masters to modern. Pacific Northwest Ballet embraces boundary-pushing choreographers for new dance expressions en pointe. And the city is home to more than 80 theater companies, presenting new work and classic favorites in captivating productions on stage. When you take in all that Seattle’s vibrant arts community offers, you can glimpse the very soul of the city.
