Special Exhibition

Images from Favorite Washington Places

A juried photography exhibition capturing favorite places to walk in cities and towns around Washington

In celebration of the simple pleasures of walking in a community setting, the Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) is pleased to announce a call to photographic artists for an upcoming exhibition centered on the pedestrian experience in the cities and towns of Washington State. WALKING THE NEIGHBORHOOD will highlight both the creativity of our state’s residents and those special Washington places, things and people that inspire us to get on the move.

The WSCC is located at the intersection of several of Seattle’s central neighborhoods. As with the existing Convention Center building, an important design element of the “sister” convention facility being planned for 9th Avenue and Pine Street is enhanced pedestrian connections. We are committed to improving the walking environment between Capitol Hill/First Hill and the Seattle downtown core – that environment which reflects both the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest and our love of art and architecture in a livable and vibrant city. Just as Seattle is known for its walkability, with public seating, landscaping and amazing views available throughout the city, so there are a great many communities, large and small, in our state where people love to walk.
