Just got an email from the Bellevue Arts Museum saying “last Saturday (July 21, 2012), Bellevue Arts Museum set yet another record. The Museum, known for its unique focus on art, craft and design, raised over $1 million at its annual fundraising gala, Artful Evening. ‘This is more than a 45% increase over last year and almost double what we raised two years ago," says Managing Director Larry Wright. "We’re immensely grateful for the community’s support.’ "
Not only is this wonderful news for the museum, but I think it’s good news for the arts economy throughout the area.
