Painting or pottery, film or flute. Artists of all kinds are discovering the City of Renton’s growing creative community.
Renton Municipal Art Commission members happily shared printed brochures at a community event just days after the piece was completed.
A creative economy is the income-earning potential of creative activities and ideas. It’s where arts, culture, business and technology meet. People participate through conventional employment and, most commonly, in freelance ventures. Examples include small businesses offering crafts, entertainment, fine art, small-batch foods and more.
Renton welcomes artists and promotes the community’s inspiring setting, lower costs and business support. Public art programs like the hydrant painting program, wrapped utility boxes, murals and grants welcome makers to the local arts scene.
JayRay also promotes Renton’s artistic side through social media posts and media pitches.
