The Lynnwood Public Facilities District Art Committee has partnered with the Lynnwood Convention Center to bring public art exhibitions to the Center for the past six years. These exhibitions are on display at the Lynnwood Convention Center and are FREE to the public!
The exhibitions are rotated twice a year and with each installation there is an Artist Reception where the artists themselves can talk about their work and answer questions from the public.
The mediums vary from painting, photography, and mixed media to contemporary quilting.
The public are welcome to come and view the current art exhibits during Convention Center regular business hours, Monday-Friday 8:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M.

Big and Little Artists of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County
The Keg has a long history of charitable giving and in 2001, The Keg Spirit Foundation was established to commemorate The Keg's 30th anniversary. The creation of the Foundation provided a vehicle to consolidate existing charitable activities while focusing on new ways to give back to local Keg communities.
While the Foundation concentrates on supporting charities that focus on the development of children and youth, its specific goal is to recognize organizations that mirror the mentorship that The Keg Steakhouse + Bar has provided to so many young people. To date, The Keg Spirit Foundation has raised more than $6.8 million for over 300 charities across North America.
Since 2001, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been one of the largest beneficiaries of grants from The Keg Spirit Foundation. Their commitment to impacting children's lives through mentoring, as well as a shared presence within many of the same communities has made BBBS a natural fit with our Foundation.
Since 2008, The Keg Spirit Foundation has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County by hosting an Art Auction at The Keg Steakhouse & Bar in Lynnwood. Hand selected pieces of art from Littles - children who are enrolled in the mentoring program, are offered up for sale with 100% of the proceeds going to support the ongoing programs offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County.
2014 brings a new exciting component to the Art Auction. The Lynnwood Convention Center has joined forces and has not only offered to display pieces of Little’s art in order to help promote children’s art in the community, but will also host the Art Auction scheduled for September 22nd. Staff at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County has been offering an array of art classes to help Littles create their professional looking masterpieces. The Lynnwood Convention Center’s Art Committee selected the pieces which are now on display. The Littles whose art was selected will have an opportunity to talk about their piece(s) at an artist’s reception hosted by the Convention Center on Thursday, September 18, 2014.
