Bellevue Arts Museum fundraiser breaks record

Bellevue Arts Museum raised over $1 million at its annual fundraising gala, Artful Evening.

Over the years, BAM has exponentially increased support through its annual fundraiser, affirming the Museum’s role as a vibrant cultural institution with a growing national reputation. In 2006, just a year after BAM expanded its mission to include craft and design, the event (then called Patron Party) raised less than $80,000. In 2011 over $685,000 were raised, a then all‐time record, which is once again exceeded by this year’s outstanding result.

Bellevue Arts Museum is the Pacific Northwest’s center for the exploration of art, craft, and design. The Museum connects people of all ages with the extraordinary works of Northwest artists while bringing national and international collections to its community. Dynamic educational programs provide unique opportunities to connect with art and artists; past or present, experimental or established. Each July, BAM hosts one of the largest and most treasured art festivals of the year, the Bellevue Arts Museum artsfair. BAM is located in the heart of downtown Bellevue, provides free parking and is wheelchair accessible. Please visit for details.
