Public Art Walk
There is no better way to explore Bellevue than on foot and following the Downtown Bellevue Art Walk is a great way to see popular spots as well as hidden treasures. Downtown Bellevue boasts more than 120 works of public art, both indoors and out. People interested in seeing the art can pick up the "ArtMap", courtesy of the Bellevue Arts Commission, that graphically displays how art has become ingrained in the character of downtown. ArtMaps are free and available on the first floor of City Hall and in the information kiosk at Meydenbauer Center on level 2.
You are also welcome to download and print out this printer-friendly version of the full map. Alternatively, for a map that just shows a smaller section of downtown, print only the pages you need from this version.
Downtown Bellevue is roughly 1 square mile, laid out on a grid pattern and easy to navigate. As a result, art walks nearly organize themselves. Just pick a starting point and this guide will show you where all the art is nearby. Pick your direction and set off on your art explorations.
