Public Art

Hitting the pavement to explore and view Kirkland’s vast collection of intriguing public art is the perfect urban adventure – embracing the city’s walkable beauty and highlighting its varied assortment of over two dozen outdoor sculptures.  

Our array of public art will stop you mid-step. Whimsical, dynamic, and poignant sculptures by leading regional and nationally known artists are poised throughout Kirkland in City parks, on sidewalks and alongside the waterfront. Look out for a pair of bronze grizzlies roaming in the middle of downtown, children gleefully leaping over a never-ending puddle in Marina Park, and giant hares taking a breather on a downtown street corner.

Park Lane in downtown Kirkland hosts an outdoor sculpture gallery. Curated by the Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission, sculptures are displayed on a rotating basis and are for sale to the public.
