#1 THE ADVANCEMENT OF EDUCATION:
The BCA provides a unique opportunity for the general public, aspiring and professional artists to learn and practice traditional, contemporary and emerging approaches to the visual arts, fine crafts, culinary arts and new media, while sharing best practices amongst themselves and the general public. We do this by providing high-quality structured educational opportunities and exposure to the arts through workshops, open studios, mobile art programs, exhibitions and festivals for all ages and abilities.
#2 ADVANCING THE PUBLIC’S APPRECIATION OF THE VISUAL ARTS:
The BCA enriches the lives of resident and visitors to our community and advances public appreciation of art through the creation of a centre dedicated to the synergy of the arts and the creation of a public arts facility for creative expression. The BCA will offer exhibitions, installations and presentations of visual arts including: photography, drawing and illustration, painting, sculpture, new media and other forms of visual arts by making available year-round curated, high-quality public art experiences not readily accessible to all who live, and visit the rural communities throughout Huron County.
