For many years, Seattle was regarded as a place of creativity and the arts. After all, our city has shaped bands like Nirvana, Sunny Day Real Estate, Soundgarden, and many more. Not only that, but our city has been home to artists like Dale Chihuly, Jacob Lawrence, and Guy Anderson, among others. With all this in mind, it only makes sense that Seattle is considered one of the most artsy cities in America.
