Pacific Northwest Arts Fair
The 53-year-old fair, ranked number
four fine arts fair in the country by
Magazine, draws more than 280,000 visitors. Displays include
such diverse works as handmade paper, blown glass, metal sculpture,
pottery, woven pieces, and painted silk clothing. Proceeds from the
three-day event support the Bellevue Art Museum, providing
one-third of its annual operating budget. Programs include a kids'
fair, artist demo stage, celebration arts stage, hands-on
activities for families, performing artists, free museum admission,
and preview party. The project is documented by photographs, a
written report, and a video entitled "Art: A Fair Legacy."
