You may remember that BCAH created "Friday Virtual Art Shows" to keep the community engaged during the time of stay-at-home recommendations and social distancing.

We have stopped making those videos, but would love to hear from artists and community members if they would like to see those shows return.

Here's artwork from one artist who is hoping BCAH will start making the videos again:

Broomfield Without Art...

Imagine a world without art...without cultural or science programming.

No paintings that provoke contemplation. No towering statutes that draw gazes. No music that stirs your soul. No plays inciting lively discussions. No creative doodles hanging from refrigerators. No appreciation for the background and heritage of our fellow neighbors. No inventive or curious minds exploring or wondering how something works. Art, cultural and science programming equals change within ourselves, our neighbors of all ages, and the community as creativity feeds the heart, mind and soul.

A Broomfield without art or diverse programming would mean the artistic and cultural landscape of the community we love would not exist. To sustain programming in Broomfield, we must understand where it all began, who cultivates, presents, and supports it, and how we, as individuals and a community, can take steps to strengthen the very organization that started the development of artistic programming in Broomfield.

In 1973, local leaders went before the city council and explained why art is essential to a healthy, vibrant community and stressed the need for a central, nonprofit arts organization. The City Council voted unanimously to designate the Broomfield Council on the Arts & Humanities (BCAH) as the “official arts organization of the City of Broomfield.” In 1984, the mayor cited BCAH as the “official cultural organization for Broomfield” when BCAH circulated the petition to build the auditorium. Historically, BCAH has been a guide, a partner and a cultivator of many arts programs and groups; deserving of its recognition as an indispensable resource to the community. Truly, the introduction of BCAH to Broomfield was the catalyst that brought about the artistic and cultural of landscape of Broomfield. Yet, as our community continues to grow, less of its residents are aware of BCAH and its legacy, the importance of its continued existence, the programs it presents, and the various groups it supports.

Hello-OMBP? As many of us know, the arts are so important to education. As we also know, funding for art education is difficult.

Right now they are trying to earn money for a nice printer to print programs for events, lights for the auditorium and risers for the choir. If you feel called to donate to this cause, please click on the link below. Thank you so much for your support!
