Arts Commission

The Sammamish Arts Commission serves as an advisory body to the City Council in matters concerning the promotion and facilitation of public art in the community.


Mission Statement

"Integrating art and culture to create a sense of place, civic identity, and unique character."

Guiding Principles

Artistic excellence: We strive for artistic excellence by showcasing high caliber local, regional and national artistic programming that reflects the city’s vision.

Accessibility: We engage deeply and widely with all segments of city, striving to reach all members of the community and create an avenue for artists to bring their creativity to the public.

Collaboration: We are committed to creating alliances and partnerships within and outside Sammamish to promote artistic excellence and accessibility. We work collaboratively with various state, regional and local agencies to enhance the effectiveness of the arts commission.

Community Design: We focus our efforts to nurture and build ‘creative capital’ locally, including taking necessary risks, to realize the impacts of the arts in fostering a vibrant social economy.

Diversity: We value diversity in artistic expressions and strive to promote arts as a universal language that binds people from different backgrounds and breathes life into our communities.
