In 2010, Bellevue Arts Museum launched the BAM Biennial, a juried exhibition occurring every two years which focuses on the work of established and emerging Northwest artists, craftspeople, and designers, with an emphasis on current and new work. For each edition, Bellevue Arts Museum designates a new focus of exploration, be it a specific medium, technique, process, or theme in art, craft, and design.

The fourth edition in the series, BAM Biennial 2016: Metalmorphosis, is focused on the medium of metal.

Whether precious or prosaic, metal has captivated makers and thinkers alike for over 10,000 years, inviting thoughts on transformation and attempts to unlock the secrets of the physical and metaphysical realms. The Museum received a record-breaking 330 applications for this year's biennial-a testament to the creative potential of this elemental material and the powerful inspiration it continues to evoke in art, craft, and design. From this talented and vast pool of applicants, 49 artists have been chosen to participate.
