Bellevue Arts Museum’s 72nd BAM ARTSfair

The 72nd BAM ARTSfair takes place from July 27-29 at Bellevue Arts Museum and Bellevue Square. More than 300 jury-picked artists together will exhibit thousands of original artworks in a variety of media including wood, glass, ceramics, and paint.

“Whether you’re a seasoned art aficionado searching for the next piece to add to your collection or are just looking to have some fun, BAM ARTSfair is a destination for everyone who loves art,” the museum said in a statement.

Aside from the artwork, BAM ARTSfair will also feature community art-making, performance art, live music, and the “ever-so-messy” KIDSfair.

BAM ARTSfair began in 1947, with an event that attracted 30,000 people to Bellevue. Today, the fair sees hundreds of thousands of visitors and has included artists such as Dale Chihuly, Chuck Close, and Patti Warashina.
