Operated by the Port of Seattle, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is the 9th busiest airport in U.S. and 40th largest international airport.
Our art collection features some of the finest contemporary work in glass, sculpture, photography, painting and sound. The region's diversity is well-represented through European, all-American, Asian, Northwest Native American and folk-art influences. Some of the works are by 20th century artists of great renown, such as Frank Stella, Louise Nevelson and Robert Rauschenberg. Many more are by regional and emerging artists who vitalize the collection with wit, charm, beauty and occasional irreverence.
