Banners hang in the trees above five meditation stations in Hamlin Park. In addition to fostering mindfulness as an important practice in today’s world of screens, the installation also encourages visitors to imagine recreation (especially walking in urban forests) as a form of public art.

Public Art in Shoreline: Defining Public Space in Artistic Terms

Shoreline’s 1% for Art program has funded public art in the City since 2002. Since then, we have added more than 25 permanent sculptures, ranging from integrated design to conceptual installations, banners, murals, utility box wraps,  and more. New temporary projects since 2012 add to the City’s cultural fabric, and City Hall hosts a number of exhibitions, showcasing the work of 50+ artists each year.
