In 2010, Bellevue Arts Museum launched the BAM Biennial, a juried exhibition occurring every two years which focuses on the work of
established and emerging Northwest artists and craftsmen, emphasizing current and new work. For each edition, Bellevue Arts Museum
designates a new focus of exploration, be it a specific medium, technique, process, or theme in art, craft, and design.
The Biennial is an opportunity for makers of all kinds to push the boundaries of their vision and skill. The exhibition is intended to recognize the innovative and extraordinary work being produced by contemporary Northwest makers, and to celebrate the region's distinctive character.
