Bellwether 2018

Bellwether is a free, 10-day, multi-disciplinary arts experience produced by the City of Bellevue in collaboration with Bellevue’s arts community and with guidance from the city’s Arts Commission. Thank you to our generous event partners: Bellevue Arts Museum, Bellevue Downtown Association and Madison Marquette.

A bellwether is a sign of things to come. The name was chosen as a symbol of the overarching mission of the event: to showcase Bellevue’s creative future and to turn that future into reality.

Bellwether got its start as a biennial sculpture exhibition in 1992. Now in its 14th series, the event has evolved to encompass new forms of art and culture. Starting in 2018, Bellwether will be held every year to harness the city’s growth and support artists year-round.

Support for Bellwether 2018 comes from the Port of Seattle and our media sponsors 425 Magazine, Crosscut and 91.3 KBCS.
