Going to the library is a wondrous adventure. Dive into the pages of literature, and prepare for a marvelous journey! Besides meeting new characters and traveling to different universes, libraries often combine art and design in the environment.
I decided to check out the Bellevue Regional Library on a whim after passing it numerous times on foot. The minute I stepped onto the property, I was greeted by a jaw-dropping license plate art installation, Vernacular, by Buster Simpson. It is part of a recently built garage that beautifully integrates urban art and plant life into the metro area. Around the perimeter of the library, there are plenty of public art pieces to admire so don’t forget to bring your walking shoes!
When you enter the Bellevue Regional Library, the comfy living room inspired interior will make you want to stay awhile. The combination of cool concrete, warm toned wood, and light colored metals create balance between the edgy utilitarian style with an inviting light and airy feel from the tall ceilings and giant white walls. Decorated with unique textures and contemporary art pieces throughout, the Bellevue Regional Library is definitely worth a visit.
