Starting Wednesday, March 18th the BAC will be closing for the remainder of March. Students in current classes will receive prorated refunds or credit towards another class. Students registered for upcoming classes will be contacted and offered credit for a reschedule date or a refund. A decision regarding classes beginning in April or later will be made closer to that time in order to adjust for the most recent recommendations or lifting of restrictions.

Next Exhibits
The Annual High School and Middle School Exhibit will sadly not take place this year. The school closings directly impacts the prep time needed for the students and instructors to get entries ready and submissions to the BAC. This notice includes independent entries as well. (High School & Middle School Awards Reception originally scheduled for Sunday 4/26.) We have released artists and organizations from their contracts for the next round of exhibits. The next exhibits to be installed will be in May.

Thank  you for your patience with our unusual hours during this time.
This week we expect to be open

Monday 1:30-5:00
