Mission Statement

The Bug Performance and Media Arts Center is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization that seeks to foster a supportive community of artists in Denver by providing the opportunity for the development of unique voices, a diverse audience, and dynamic programming. We believe in the spirit of artistry as the driving force behind every production, in the integrity of the creative individual, and in the power of shared artistic experience.

Description

Originally built in 1912 as a nickelodeon movie house, the theatre now known as The Bug survived multiple incarnations and more than 25 years of dormancy before local artists Chandler Romeo and Reed Weimer renovated the building in 1994 and founded the Bug Performance & Media Art Center (BPMAC), a non-profit organization dedicated to serving Denver audiences by facilitating the development and presentation of diverse arts and cultural programming. Though recognized early on by the media as an important Denver alternative arts center, the organization floundered financially. In 1998, Donna Morrison and Alex Weimer took on the roles of Artistic Director and Technical Director, respectively, and founded the resident Bug Theatre Company (BTC). The company flourished and gained critical acclaim & financially stability.
