An art project in Bridle Trails featured on Lake to Lake.

New public art was dedicated recently in the Bridle Trails neighborhood, and Lake to Lake was there for the occasion. Trudi Jackson, chairwoman of the Bellevue Arts Commission, said "Art can play many roles in neighborhoods. It can be a center of community. Right here in Bridle Trails the art is going to bring people together."

Lake to Lake, a video news show about Bellevue, can be viewed on the city's YouTube channel, on BTV Channel 21, or streamed via Bellevue TV. Other segments this month cover hot times at the Fire Department's open house; winter driving tips; and improvements on 120th Avenue Northeast.
