Bellevue Arts Museum has grown alongside the city of Bellevue to become the Pacific Northwest's center to experience art, craft, and design. It is one of few museums that grew out of an art fair. Started by a handful of dedicated volunteers, the first art fair was held in 1947 and eventually led to the founding of the museum in 1975.
Located in the heart of downtown Bellevue, the three-story, 36,000 square foot museum was designed by internationally renowned architect Steven Holl. The bold glass, aluminum, and textured concrete structure provides a dramatic presence across the street from Bellevue Square.
With a long history of community engagement, the museum today is home to provocative exhibitions and programs highlighting some of the region's most influential artists as well as international collections. The Bellevue Arts Museum provides a public forum for community to contemplate, appreciate, and discuss visual culture.
