Arts Downtown, began in 1995 with a dream to build a collection of quality public art in Puyallup, a collection that today features more than 50 artworks in our outdoor gallery. We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization. We work with support from the City of Puyallup, local businesses and private citizens to provide for the installation, maintenance and preservation of works in Puyallup’s outdoor gallery, and provide educational programs and tours for the public.
In 2017 we merged with the former Valley Arts United to help support art galleries at our City hall and Activity Center and the choral group Tapestry Singers, as well as sponsoring and participating in a variety of arts events and activities throughout the year.
Our goal is to enhance visual literacy and appreciation for the arts, and to encourage cultural tourism, thereby contributing to both the economy and quality of life within our community.
