Thank you to all of our supporters for a great 2015 - 2016.

Twelve years ago when I first became Executive Director, Barnsdall Arts /FOJACserved under 10,000 people. Our quality programs and exhibitions have expanded and developed substantially in the intervening years.

We doubled the number of people we served in classes and workshops:

The total number of people we served in programs and exhibitions also increased dramatically:
