About Ruri Yampolsky

Ruri Yampolsky is the Waterfront Program Arts Manager for the city of Seattle’s Office of the Waterfront and Civic Projects, working to ensure that arts and culture are fully integrated into one of the largest civic transformations Seattle has undertaken. With 30 years’ experience in the public art field, including managing Seattle’s public art program and numerous art projects, she has worked to expand collective experience by advocating for a variety of artistic expressions in artworks that shape urban space, engage community, encourage civic dialog and bring new voices into the field.

Ruri served on the Public Art Network Council for Americans for the Arts, finishing out as vice-chair, and focusing on diversity, equity and inclusion in public art practice, policies and procedures. Most recently, she collaborated with national colleagues on a document addressing issues of problematic monuments and memorials. She is a registered architect with a Master of Architecture from Columbia University, and earned her Bachelor of Arts in architecture with a minor in Latin from Barnard College.

Thank you to Ruri Yampolsky, Waterfront Program Arts Manager, and ArtTable’s Northwest Chapter for organizing this program.
