Burien Public Art

In Burien, art is often just around the corner. Since 1998, both privately owned and publicly funded art, created by generations of artists, has enriched the lives of Burien residents. Take a creative walking tour through Burien by exploring both permanent public artworks installed throughout the community as well as rotating, storefront galleries in our downtown.

The City is planning long-term for public art, please help us understand your priorities for public art by taking this quick survey below.

The Burien Art in Public Places Fund was established by ordinance in 1998. It sets aside 50 cents per capita every year to support public art in Burien.
