Our top priority is the health and safety of our visitors and staff. While social distancing measures are necessary, we are not hosting in-person programs. We do, however, have lots to keep you inspired online and hope you follow us on Instagram and Facebook for announcements on virtual tours, Art Break Live, BMA Violet Hour, and more.
