All are invited to enjoy an evening in downtown Burien with a view of the Art Alley this Saturday night, May 18, 2024 with special guests Massive Monkees and Fever One behind the decks.

This fundraiser party will be held from 6:30–11 p.m. at Humble Hall (map below).

Mural Masters is an annual graffiti/street art festival held in Burien’s Art Alley since 2014. This year they will be hosting over 18 local and national/international artists to transform The Art Alley and some adjacent walls with stunning large-scale murals, spanning diverse styles and disciplines. Our mission is to cultivate inclusive community spaces, deter graffiti, and foster economic growth through the celebration of urban artistry.

This year’s event’s objective is to celebrate diverse styles of large-scale urban art and honor the artists behind them. Through the application of art on buildings, we not only deter graffiti but also cultivate community, knowledge, and joy within Burien. Mural Masters serves as a catalyst for tourism and economic growth, embodying our commitment to inclusivity by spotlighting artists from communities of color, women, and the LGBTQ+ community. While we welcome international and national artists, we prioritize local talent, providing spaces for the voices of Burien and neighboring communities.

This year, we will also host an art market, kids hands-on projects, older kids and adult art wall, a live dj, some b-boy/b-girl battles, a black book session on Friday evening and an artist panel addressing the evolution of the graffiti art form on Saturday evening.

The festival’s main public venue, the Art Alley, situated on SW 152nd Alley between 4th Ave SW and Ambaum Blvd SW, serves as a central hub for Mural Masters.

Besides driving down The Art Alley the murals can be viewed from Ambaum, 6th Ave SW, 4th Ave SW and SW 153rd Street.

It is integral to our mission to make art accessible to all. We work to ensure free public all-ages participation. We aim to fortify Burien’s art community by demystifying the mural-making process and inviting spectators to witness its creation and to learn and contribute in their own way. We believe neighborhoods should mirror their inhabitants. One way is to use mural art to reflect community identity created by artists who represent the diversity embodied in Burien.

The Mural Masters event provides Burien community members of all ages opportunities to participate in the creative act, making art and meeting artists at no cost in public spaces. This is the ultimate form of accessibility.

Along with making art accessible to the public, the Mural Masters Invitational sets aside walls for emerging artists and builds free-standing panels for student graffiti artists. We believe in supporting all levels of artists.
