Newport Hills/Lake Heights Art
Newport Hills and Lake Heights residents have been working with Bellevue Arts Program staff and artist Bruce Myers to develop a pair of bus shelter treatments and additional public art that would enhance neighborhood character and add to a sense of place along 119th Avenue Southeast between Southeast 56th and 60th streets, the area's neighborhood business district.
To date, the artist Bruce Myers, has installed artworks onto the two bus shelters on 119th on the east and west sides of the street. He has also installed a large 16 foot tall artwork on the corner of 119th Avenue SE and SE 58th Street. The City's Urban Boulevards program partnered with the Arts Program to design and install a companion landscaping project along 119th that is designed to match themes within the art. Landscaping along the street has been completed.
Completion of the final art component is coming soon! The artist has worked with the community on the creation of stone mosaics that will be set in place on several of granite boulders along the street. An example of the stone mosaics is shown below.
