Did you know that May is Washington State Art Education Month?

To celebrate, Burien Parks and Recreation collaborated with Burien merchants and middle and high school art teachers from the Highline School District to organize the first annual Student Art Walk.

Businesses up and down 152nd Street played host to a variety of visual and performing arts.

Despite the constant rain, several hundred people were estimated to have taken part in the art walk.

Burien Park’s Gina Kalman tells us, “It was a great way to celebrate the students and their fabulous art! We are excited to plan an even bigger art walk for May 2013!”

Many of the businesses will be keeping the artwork up through May 13, so you still have time to get out and enjoy some of the amazing artwork by local students.

You can download a PDF map of the businesses that participated.

BTB photog Michael Brunk strolled down 152nd Street last night and shot the following photos. You can click individual images to view them larger.
