Bellevue Arts Museum along with Bellevue Arts and Crafts Fair every July, focus on the hand make arts and crafts. The fairs is a very competitive sale, and only after a jury selects from samples submitted months before, are you allowed to have a booth.

We had some time to kill before meeting up with a friend for dinner, so we went to the Bellevue Arts Museum (BAM). The cost was about $11.00 dollars per person and we strolled among the exhibits on the first, thru third floors. There was...More
