Students give back with H.E.ART pop-up gallery
A group of Bellevue Big Picture students are planning to make a philanthropic splash in the Bellevue student art world this spring.
Victoria Helmer says that after doing two of her Big Picture internships at the Foundation, she's inspired to give back. Victoria and her classmates, Joey DaSilva, Anjali Skilton, and Isabella Burckhardt have been busy at the Foundation offices every Thursday under the mentorship of Director Lynn Juniel, coordinating a pop-up student art gallery called H.E.ART that will
both showcase student artists and raise funds for the arts in schools.
Between 50 and 100 student artists will be featured, with their works for viewing and for sale at Crossroads Mall between March 21 and April 4. Art submissions with a Pacific Northwest theme are being accepted until March 7; visit
for more information or follow the group on instagram @heartgallerybellevue.
The students are brainstorming with the Foundation to put the funds to the best possible use.
