The City of Shoreline’s first art show dedicated to the creation of a permanent indoor art collection has arrived on the 3rd and 4th floors of City Hall (M-F 9:00-5:00 until September 17). 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline 98133. 

From this exhibition of 44 artworks by 30 artists in the Puget Sound area (including 4 from Shoreline specifically and another 5 from Edmonds, Lynnwood, Woodinville, and the north end), the City’s Public Art Program is seeking to choose 2-5 artworks for permanent display at city facilities.

Residents who see the show before Friday, June 22 will be able to submit a ballot voting for their favorite pieces. The Parks Board will make the final decisions.

From over 105 artist submissions and more than 500 artworks, jurors David Francis and Jason Huff (from Seattle Arts and Culture; also a Shoreline resident) selected a final group of 30 (44 artworks).

Each explores contemporary art as a balancing of objectives and a blending of disciplinary focus.

Many of the artists have backgrounds in other fields and experiences in other countries, reflecting a global village of contemporary art.

As Huff writes in his juror’s statement, “Given the city's commitment to equity and inclusion, it was important to make sure that the artists whose works are part of this selection reflected diversity of people and communities that make up Shoreline.”

Themes vary from nature, to history, identity, and the design of spatial representation. A notebook on the 3rd floor features artists’ statements, bios, and resumes.
