Pop-up Art Gallery Program

The Burien Arts Association debuted its new Pop-up Art Gallery program on January 6, 2017  in the lobby of the City Municipal Office, third floor, Burien Library and City Hall Building, 400 SW 152nd Street, Burien.

The Pop-up Art Gallery at the Municipal Office is open during City business hours, Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The Gallery is free and open to the public.

We love to feature established artists and emerging artists alike, including student artists.

The previous Burien Arts Gallery, at 826 SW 152nd St. Olde Burien, closed on December 24, 2016 after three years of operation at that location.

Second Location at Burien Actors Theatre

In early February, Burien Arts added a second Pop-up Gallery venue at the Burien Actors Theatre, 14501 4th Ave SW, Burien. The Theatre is located in the Burien Community Center Annex (previously a school.)

Works by local artists are in display in the lobby during the run of a show. The lobby is open before, during, and after the performance.

We look forward to seeing you at our Pop-up Art Gallery locations!
