History of Membership Show
Founded in 1971 by local artists, the Bay Area Art Association (BAAA) provided members with a place to meet to learn, and to exhibit their artwork. Working together they formed a supportive environment for their creativity and continued growth. For over 41 years, their membership enriched the community with art festivals, guilds, and art exhibits. With the dissolution of BAAA, the Bonifas Arts Center is carrying on the mission of the annual Membership Show.
Gallery exhibits are sponsored in part by: National Endowment for the Arts, The Addision Foundation, patronage from the City of Escanab, and members like you.
