Location: Harpeth Knoll

Bellevue Bench Mark (public art)

Craig Nutt’s work is a bench seat derived from maps of the May 2010 flood in Bellevue. A blue line atop the bench traces the riverbed of the Harpeth River as it winds through Bellevue.

Artist Craig Nutt writes about his experience participating in the Bellevue community meeting, “...flood experiences ranged from helping neighbors to the loss of family members. The participants portrayed a community that is neighborly, resolute, resilient and proud of the way they pulled together during and after the flood... not victims, but survivors.”
