Best Murals in Seattle


Like so many big cities, Seattle has its share of graffiti. Leave a wall bare for any length of time and someone is bound to tag it with something less than desirable. Fortunately for us, we also have a number of talented artists who got to some of those walls first. Here are just five of Seattle’s best that are sure to keep a conversation going.

One of Seattle’s oldest murals is still celebrated today. Built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the Mural Amphitheatre was designed by Paul Horiuchi and was originally placed over a pool of water, but now serves as a backdrop for many outdoor concerts at the Seattle Center. The giant glass mosaic piece still shimmers with the Space Needle just behind for added effect.
