The Sammamish Arts Commission serves as an advisory body to the City Council. Their role is to advise on 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 showcase high-caliber local, regional, and national artistic programming that reflects the city’s vision.


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


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 on nurturing and building “creative capital” locally. The purpose of this is to realize the impacts of the arts in fostering a vibrant social economy.


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