The Public Art in Neighborhoods Program is a new initiative designed to foster collaborative artist-community work. Artwork produced through this program reflects neighborhood identity and creates an enhanced sense of place. The program aims to:
- Engage residents with public art and its process;
- Build a greater sense of community ownership of Bellevue’s public art program;
- Develop public art with artistic merit and community meaning; and
- Support collaboration among community members and between community members and artists.
The Public Art in Neighborhoods Program rotates around Bellevue's 13 neighborhood enhancement areas.
Newport Hills and Lake Heights
A joint-neighborhood project, with artist Bruce Myers designing a pair of bus shelter treatments and an additional artwork. Together, these artworks will reflect and enhance the character of the community. The community selected 119th Avenue Southeast, between Southeast 56th and 60th streets, as the site for the artwork. How much of the art work designed can be built will depend on budget available.
Art selection panelists include neighborhood residents Lisa Vierick, Debra Haraldson, Cheryl Nygaard, Barbara Moffatt, Michelle Hilhorst, Arts Commissioner Genevieve Tremblay and public artistist Jen Dixon.
The artist selected to work collaboratively with this neighborhood will create artwork incorporating Bridle Trails' equestrian tradition. This artwork will reflect and enhance the character of the community. The community selected possible sites for the artwork.
Art selection panelists include residents Passion Julinsey, Bob Adamowski, Peggy Swistak, Sue Raschella, Arts Commission Chair and resident Judy Holder, public artist Perri Lynch, and artist and director of exhibitions for Cornish School of the Arts Cable Griffith.
