Bellwether 2012: reGeneration

'flourish'    Barbara De Pirro

Bellevue Biennial Sculpture Exhibition

In this years event I will have two installations, 'flourish' and 'roots & vines'. 'flourish' is wrapped around two lamp posts located adjacent to the Bellevue Art Museum and 'roots & vines' can be found in the Galleria, in front of the Rock Bottom Brewery. 
A bit more info can be found HERE.

"The city of Bellevue will host it’s 11th sculpture and installation exhibition this summer, when the Bellwether 2012: reGeneration exhibition and art walk kicks off July 13.
Started in 1992, Bellwether is a biennial, three- to four-month display of sculptures and installations in Downtown Bellevue that began as an experiment to see what type of art Eastsiders enjoy. This year’s exhibition, taking place through October 21, will include a variety of sculptures and installations ranging from small to nearly 19-feet tall throughout downtown.

An opening celebration set for July 13, 6 PM at City Hall. 
The free celebration is open to the public and will feature several artists whose work will be part of the exhibit. Exhibition maps and catalogs will be available at the opening ceremony and a downloadable version of the map will also be available at this time."
