Come celebrate the 3rd annual NW Mural Masters event, featuring several local graffiti and street artists from the Northwest and beyond this weekend!

Some of the artists include They Drift, Hews, Tars, 179, Apaul, Sneke, and more!

There will be live painting on Saturday and Sunday, including a wall for kids to paint.

The 2017 NW Mural Masters will take place alongside Burien’s Wild Strawberry Festival and the Discover Burien Father’s Day Car Show.

The Art Alley is a designated alleyway between 4th Ave SW and 6th Ave SW in the SW 152nd Alley.

The goal of this project is to celebrate the different styles and collaborations of street art, graffiti and more traditional muralists.

This type of art deters unwanted graffiti and other undesirable and illegal activities, while creating positive energy in neglected areas, such as alleys…as well as a sense of community, and possibly tourism!
