Be in the Know



Bellevue Art in the Garden | 
Join us August 26-28 at the Bellevue Botanical Garden for the second annual Art in the Garden. Sculptures and garden art by thirty outstanding NW artists will grace the garden grounds, turning it into a treasure wonderland where you can wander the grounds searching for these amazing pieces; some will be clearly visible, others tucked into corners and waiting around the bend of a path.


From the serious and simplistic to the whimsical and elaborate, exhibits will include works in metal, wood, blown and fused glass, bronze and other outdoor-appropriate materials.
