Arts for All

With over 40 public art installations and dedicated capital funds for public art, we strive to make our city a beautiful place to live, play, and express your artistic side. This love for art extends throughout the community with over 15 annual events and festivals—and most are free! The big ones include the Shoreline Arts Festival, which draws over 10,000 people and Celebrate Shoreline, a week long extravaganza featuring art, food, and main stage concerts showcasing local music like Pickwick and Grace Love & the True Loves.

We also host year-round theatrical and musical productions at Shoreline Community College Theater (a 2016 venue for the Seattle International Film Festival) and a unique selection of Indie, foreign, and avant-garde flicks at the Landmark Crest Theater. Shoreline is also fertile ground for local music acts. Robert Lang Studios, where Nirvana recorded their final album, brings musicians from across the region – and the world! The live music scene is growing in Shoreline, where KUOW reports musicians can still find plenty of space to practice and perform in local establishments.
