The City of Bellevue seeks an artist or artist team to create a series of integrated public artworks that utilize creative placemaking principles as part of the 130th Avenue NE Shopping Street streetscape (currently in design) in the BelRed Arts District.
What makes this opportunity unique: This is a chance to set the tone for a future visible Arts District, with many artists, arts organizations and creative businesses within BelRed tucked away within a few blocks. Sited at the entrance to the Shopping Street will be Sound Transit’s East Link Light Rail line with a station located from 130th to 132nd on Spring Boulevard. With disciplines ranging from dance to music to fabrication, along with an increasing presence of creative technology firms, the artist/artist team is expected to create a series of artworks that are innovative and representative of what this area is planned to be – a vibrant mixed-use district with art in public spaces and art being practiced and created. With 150-foot buildings zoned for the area, this site will look nothing like it does today. This is a great opportunity for something different.
