In addition to a lobby installation of large scale, wall-hung artwork by Alden Mason and Robert Sperry, 4Culture found the exterior of the building to be the ideal site for several artworks re-sited from other locations.

Robert Sperry's ceramic tile mural, Untitled #625 is a robust example of this regionally influential artist's work. Using kiln shelves and colored slip, Sperry constructed a meditation in black and white. The painter Alden Mason, whose painting Lunar Promenade hangs adjacent to Sperry's piece in the lobby, was introduced by Sperry to the technique of applying pigment directly from a squeeze bottle, a surface that can be seen in the artist's painting Yellow Bird, currently installed in the Washington State Convention Center.

Rhododendrons is sited on the building's 4th Avenue façade. Originally installed in the Kingdome prior to the stadium's demolition, Harold Balazs' porcelain enamel on steel murals are more accessible now than in the original installation, and are indicative of this artist's large body of enamel work.

George Tsutakawa's tubular steel sculpture Sandworm is installed in the 5th Avenue plaza at the entrance to the building. The sculpture, originally created for a children's park, is one of several Tsutakawa works in Seattle's downtown. Sandworm and Rhododendrons were commissioned as part of the Honors program.
