Stay Active And View Artwork With New MLT Art Map

A new interactive map shows how to find publicly viewable art in Mountlake Terrace. Child plays at Civic Campus.

In fact, almost every public art installation here can be seen on a two-mile roundtrip walk or drive through the city’s downtown core. Artwork included on the map is mostly owned by the city, with additions from Community Transit and muralist Andrew Morrison. Private property was only added if those items are easily viewed outdoors from public areas.


The map was inspired by city staff seeing community members stop by and enjoy the collection of public art at the new Civic Campus, especially families.

The interactive map is available at and at Google Maps at A static, printable version can be found here (see preview image below.)


The city’s art collection is managed by the Arts Advisory Commission. The commission, together with the Mountlake Terrace Friends of the Arts, sponsors the Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show each fall. Unfortunately, the 2020 and 2021 shows were canceled due to COVID-19.


Please note this list is not comprehensive, and locations are approximate. To suggest edits or additions, or share fun photos, email It is anticipated that the new Link light rail station will incorporate artistic elements, but those details are not yet determined.
