"Bellwether," Bellevue's much celebrated biennial sculpture exhibition, opens Friday with a theme focused on our connections with communities, nature and each other. Larger-than-life sculptures, interactive installations and other artworks made out of materials as varied as steel, seaweed and eggshells will be on display within a three-quarter mile walking route, connecting City Hall with Bellevue Downtown Park.
"Bellwether 2014: Connect" is profiled in this month's issue of It's Your City, which began landing on doorsteps Thursday. The newsletter also features:
- A Council Corner column in which Mayor Claudia Balducci formally introduces the City Council's long-range vision for the city;
- MyBellevue, the new mobile app that puts the city in the palm of your hand;
- The downtown building boom and the growing pains that come with it; and
- A new visitor center at the Bellevue Botanical Garden and a new zip line at Eastgate Park;
Bellevue's outreach effort concerning the Puget Sound Energy's Energize Eastside project is included, and will certainly be covered in the next issue of It's Your City, to come out in October.
