LOVE Lynnwood sculpture

The Lynnwood Arts Commission, Lynnwood Parks and Recreation Foundation, Lynnwood Public Facilities District (LPFD), and Lynnwood Convention Center are partners on this exciting project.

The design is created by artist BK Choi, who grew up in Lynnwood. We are excited about this design, because it draws on his Korean American Heritage, and how he feels Lynnwood has been a welcoming city for his family as immigrants.

In the coming months, we'll work on engineering, fabricating and installing the sculpture outside the Convention Center. Project funding comes from the Elizabeth Ruth Wallace Living Trust's 2018 donation to the Parks & Recreation Foundation, and the LPFD. For more information, contact Fred Wong, fwong@lynnwoodwa.gov

The Lynnwood Arts Commission
supports universal access to diverse arts to enrich our community’s quality of life and economic vitality by:  

  • Advocating for lifelong learning in creativity and the arts
  • Promoting artists and arts opportunities
  • Encouraging openness and inclusion
  • Building community and a sense of place


Read our Cultural Arts Plan.

The Lynnwood Arts Commission is made up of seven volunteer members who serve three-year terms.  Arts Commissioners play an active role in advocating for the cultural arts including the performing, visual and literary arts.

Thanks to the work of past and present Arts Commissioners, the City has built a thriving arts program including: A Public Art CollectionArt Exhibits at City Hall featuring northwest artists, and at the Recreation Center featuring youth artists, summer Shakespeare in the Park at Lynndale Park Amphitheater, and many community partnerships.
