Burien’s Art Scene is Lively and Profound

muralBurien’s progressive arts and culture scene is anything but static. Year-round activity and excitement are generated by live theater productions at the Burien Actors Theatre, musical performances by The Northwest Symphony Orchestra, ever-evolving masterpieces in Burien’s Art Alley, art exhibitions, monthly art walks, and pop-up art galleries.

Burien realizes the importance of artists and cultural spaces within its community to catalyze diversity and inclusivity. The City has Arts and Culture Grants available to individuals, groups, and organizations who provide arts and cultural enrichment to the residents of Burien. Applications are reviewed on an annual cycle.

“There’s a lot of public art on display in Burien and there will be even more. As a museum we want to bring in the artist component - Burien Arts Association and Artists United are a representation of the diverse and rich art community we have in the city.”

— Nancy Salguero McKay, Highline Heritage Museum Executive Director
