The City of Shoreline will be choosing two to five pieces of art for its permanent collection and you can have an influence on what is chosen.

A call for artists brought in 300 pieces of art from over 100 artists.

David Francis, Public Art Coordinator, and Shoreline resident Jason Huff from Seattle Arts and Culture, selected 44 pieces which are now on display at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, 98133, Monday to Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm.

The show is on the third and fourth floors of City Hall. Visitors can take the elevator from the lobby. The art is displayed on the walls of the corridors facing the courtyard.

The show is called "Centers of Gravity" and each piece explores contemporary art as a balancing of objectives and a blending of disciplinary focus.

The show itself runs until September 17. 

However, if you view the show before Friday, June 22, you can vote on what pieces you would like the city to acquire.

While you are at City Hall, see the other works of art in the city collection - the sculpture fountain by the courtyard door, the dogwoods climbing four stories up the outside wall, the clouds hanging from the lobby ceiling, and the other pieces around the lobby.
