4 Program Areas

4Culture takes a unique approach to serving our region. Our four program areas—arts, heritage, historic preservation, and public art—put public resources to use all over King County. We work to ensure access to cultural experiences for all, from museum collections to theater productions to artists showing work in our gallery.

Storefront Spaces

Our work is based out of Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. The next time you’re out exploring this historic and dynamic area, stop by our offices to encounter work by local artists at Gallery4Culture, and check out Storefront Media, our multi-media digital art screens visible from the street on Prefontaine Place South.

Public Meetings

We invite the public to attend our monthly board and advisory committee meetings. Unless otherwise noted, these are all held at our offices at 101 Prefontaine Pl S, Seattle.
