Welcome to Downtown!

This spring is bringing more than tulips to the streets of Renton!

The City of Renton, alongside the Renton Municipal Arts Commission and several local community groups, have been working on several public art projects across the city. These projects have been small ways to bring color and pizzazz to the streets and will continue to pop up as they are completed.

The artistic hydrants of South Renton have recently upped their numbers of finished pieces.

The latest hydrant, completed by Daisy Ching, can be found next to the Bank of America parking lot on Burnett Ave. South. This is the third in a series of 20 “adoptable” hydrants that plan to be covered in art done by local artists.

More utility boxes around Renton are being wrapped with artwork.

The Benson Hill neighborhood is getting their first utility box wrap!  Thanks to the initiative of the neighborhood association, the corner of 116th Ave SE and SE 168th St looks a little brighter these days.  Utility box wraps are becoming a popular way to easily add more art and color to city streets.  Additional box wraps are planned for the downtown area, so stay tuned to see the progress!
