The City Panorama Project started when Dale Cummings, a representative of King County Metro approached Photo Center NW in the spring of 2010 looking for a way to expand on past mural projects in Metro bus shelters through photography. A grant from 4Culture was awarded for this project in summer 2010. Over 100 photo murals were installed in in the first half of 2010, and the project was a resounding success. The project enters its second year with another grant from 4Culture during the 2011-12 academic year. As a way to incorporate art into everyday life, to beautify the city, and to make new perspectives and ideas available to all, the City Panorama class seeks photographic artwork that will accomplish these objectives while increasing the visibility of the photographic arts in King County.
