Celebrating its 75th anniversary, the Bellevue Arts Museum Arts Fair is back for the summer and has gone virtual to ensure the safety of its participants. The event will be held from July 21 through August 4.
The B.A.M. (Bellevue Arts Museum) Fair will feature 132 exhibits, including 85 new exhibitors who were slated in 2020’s canceled fair and 47 who juried in the fair’s previous years. Visitors will have the opportunity to virtually connect with local artists during video conferences and even place custom orders.
The event’s digital platform is user-friendly and offers guests the ability to filter the festival by the artist, art medium, items and other criteria to help guide guests to their needs. In addition to the conferences, the fair will feature an exclusive program where participants can interview their favorite artists and participate in family-friendly activities and games.
B.A.M. will also be hosting Kids Fair to Go for its second year in a row, just outside of the museum, from July 23 to July 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.. The event provides free craft kits for little ones and their families in place of the museum’s traditional kid’s events. There are only 2,000 available, so snag one while supplies last.
The Bellevue Arts Museum Fair hopes to return to a hybrid in-person event next year. For more information, visit bellevuearts.org.
