Finishing touches for Arts al Fresco

Northwest Melodies by Marsha Lippert


With a day to go there is a flurry of creative activity in preparation for Arts al Fresco on August 1st.  

New sculpture has been installed, artists are busily painting pianos and gallery work will rotate soon. By the August 1st celebration 14 sculptures will be placed in City Hall, the courtyard lawn and the Park at Town Center across the street.

Created from steel, glass and stone these pieces provide unique perspectives of such concepts as Adam and Eve through the Wandering Eye and Migration and Bluebirds from the Aquamarine bench. Do the Sculpture Stroll and play with the City’s wellness theme around the Skater, the Ball Player and Stride.

Five new pianos will be a treat along with seven of the delightful creations from last year. The artists are putting final touches on slugs, lounge lizards, sea anemones and more. Expanding to new neighborhoods, Piano Time promises to bring magical music to Shoreline streets again this August.  Two pianos will be in play by professional musicians at Arts al Fresco on August 1st and three more will be within easy walking distance. Maps will be available that night and at shorelinewa.gov/art  following the event.

And last but certainly not least, the new exhibit in the Gallery at City Hall will be well worth a visit.  Called Look, the show will feature large colorful abstracts by three artists and stone sculpture by two carvers, including Shoreline’s former City Manager, Bob Olander. 

We’re getting ready to celebrate and hope you’ll join us at Arts al Fresco, Thursday, August 1st, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Shoreline City Hall and the Park at Town Center on the Red Brick Road.
