Artist: Brenda Stein
Location: 720 Baugh Road
Metro Arts commissioned woodturner and Nashville artist Brenda Stein to create an interior artwork using wood from hackberry trees removed from the Bellevue Branch Library construction site. Installed in 2014, Stein’s suspended wood sculpture is titled Rise Above. Her artwork is inspired by the Bellevue community’s resiliency and the limitless possibilities of books and learning. Above the circulation desk and the tech commons, nearly ninety birds gracefully soar together past the clerestory windows. In the children’s area, a colorful mobile of heart-shaped leaves provides a playful canopy above the seating area.
For more information on the community input and local connections to Rise Above and Great Beginnings, check out the Bellevue Library Public Art Flyer.
