For forty three years, Barnsdall Arts has been committed to providing outstanding, affordable arts education programs at schools, parks, libraries, museums, hospitals, social service agencies and community festivals. We conduct an impressive array of core programs and exhibitions distinguished by excellence, imagination and rigor. Barnsdall Arts collaborates with educational, civic and cultural institutions to incorporate the arts into our community.
We teach children, families, and seniors that art matters in our lives; it enriches and expands our worlds. We currently reach over 129,000 people annually with our art programs and exhibitions.
