Seattle is Seeing a Surge of Indigenous Public Art



Mukilteo Multimodal Ferry Terminal

“In December, a brand-new $187.3 million ferry terminal opened on the traditional lands of the Snohomish people. It was the result of a yearslong collaboration of 11 local tribes with the Washington State Department of Transportation and LMN Architects. The cedar-clad building (which serves one of the state’s busiest ferry routes) has a light ecological footprint, with an architectural design that takes cues from a Coast Salish longhouse. These elements — along with a permanent art collection — are meant to honor the continuing tribal presence on the land.”
