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. The City's Urban Boulevards program partnered with the Arts Program to install significant landscaping along 119th that is designed to match themes within the art. Landscaping along the street has been completed.
Completion of the final artwork is coming soon! This final piece, called Rain Catcher, will be a 14 foot tall stainless steel artwork installed on the corner of SE 56th Street and 119th Avenue SE.
