Newport Hills/Lake Heights Art
Members of the Newport Hills community met on Oct. 17 to celebrate the opening of "Rain Catchers," by artist Bruce Myers. Special thanks to all who attended the event and contributed to the project!
Newport Hills and Lake Heights residents worked with Bellevue Arts Program staff and artist Bruce Myers to develop a pair of bus shelter treatments and additional public art pieces 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.
The City's Urban Boulevards program partnered with the Arts Program to design and install a companion landscaping project along 119th that is designed to match themes within the art.
