The Arts enliven and enrich our existence!
At the Bonifas Arts Center we are committed to bringing all forms of the arts to all ages, genders and talent levels. We see the arts, not as exclusive to any particular group, but inclusive for everyone.
As you travel through our web site you will see that we offer a wide variety of classes, exhibits and special events. We are always busy, always working on the next project, always having fun. Isn’t that what the arts should be?
The Arts Center is able to bring art into the lives of many who might otherwise not have the opportunity to experience them. Alzheimer’s patients may not be able to explain why, but they can still experience the pleasure that a watercolor brings to them, in that moment. Children will laugh to themselves as they complete a project by themselves and they take it home to show off to mom. Ladies will gather together with their friends in the evening and make a necklace or arts project as they visit.
The Arts Center is able to enhance and promote the work done by local, regional and UP artists. We will showcase them in our galleries, use them to teach our classes and seek out artist level workshops to enhance their skills.
We have something for everyone and we welcome everyone to come through our doors and visit us. Enjoy a class or event or exhibit and share a bit of our enthusiasm for the arts.
If you have any questions about what’s going on or how you can become a part of it, well give us a call – anytime! We’d love to hear from you.
Remember also, that it is through your charitable contributions that we are able to keep our doors open and programming going. So please help us with your support.
