A suburban city of around 50,000 residents just south of Seattle, Burien is an art lover's paradise. In fact, there are twenty-three public art pieces on display throughout the city. The Burien Community Center houses its own art gallery. The Moshier Art Center houses a ceramics studio and studio spaces for artists. Live theater doesn't come up short either -- the Barien Actors Theater puts on live performances four times a year, and the Highline Symphonic Band keeps the music flowing year-round.
