About BAINBRIDGE ISLAND MUSEUM OF ART

Location:

550 Winslow Way East, BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA 98110, US

Mission Statement

The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art is an educational institution whose mission is to engage a diverse population with the art and craft of our region and our time.

Description

Bainbridge Island Museum of Art is a collecting museum with a focus on artists and collections from the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas, as well as the broader Puget Sound region. Located just adjacent to the Seattle/Bainbridge Island ferry terminal at the corner of Highway 305 and the main street of Bainbridge, Winslow Way, the new art museum is a welcoming landmark and a prominent community resource for quality arts education and lifelong learning. Admission to the art museum is free through sponsors and members.

The art museum features themes and artists ranging from emerging and lesser known artists to recognized masters. The exhibitions will rotate on a regular basis - typically with the seasons and will amount to 12-16 shows per year. Education is a core value and is a primary function of the art museum to promote art education for people of all ages, interests, abilities, and skill levels.

We have gallery tours, artist talks, panel discussions, films, print and digital publications, hands-on art activities are featured in the classrooms, and in the 95-seat auditorium we host artist lectures, films, classical films, poetry and theatrical readings, musical performances, and community meetings.
