The Burien Arts Gallery in Dottie Harper Park is a gathering point for the arts of the greater Burien area. In addition to the annual Arts Festival, the Gallery promotes dance, painting, sculpting, ceramics, weaving, ballet, creative activities for children, acting, singing, youth and adult symphony, literary arts, book reviews, poetry, flower arranging, local history, exhibits, and nature.
The all-volunteer Gallery primarily displays and sells the works of local artists. The basement of the main building and the adjoining building (formerly a garage) are used as classrooms and workshops. The annual Strawberry & Arts Festival attracts thousands of visitors, providing entertainment, refreshments, and interaction with local artists and vendors.
