‘Bellwether 2014: Connect’

The short stroll between Bellevue City Hall and Downtown Park is now a lot more engaging thanks to the installation of “Bellwether 2014: Connect,” the city’s biennial sculpture exhibition.

More than 30 sculptures, selected from 200 applicants, dot a three-quarter-mile walking route. Most of the artists are from the Northwest, but pieces were chosen from artists in North Carolina; Vancouver, B.C.; and Missoula, Mont., as well. A free mobile app, called STQRY, allows viewers to learn more about the artworks.

The flock of sculptures will be up through Oct. 12.

Area artists featured at “Bellwether 2014” include: Theresa Batty, Nathan Braunfeld, Kate Clark, Miguel Edwards, Alan Fulle, Elizabeth Gahan, Tom Gormally, Julia Haack, Michael Johnson, Cameron Anne Mason, Carol Milne and Allan Packer, all of Seattle; Barbara DePirro (Shelton); Joseph Gregory Rossano (Arlington); and Aaron Haba (Camano Island).
