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.

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:

2014-2015: 10,966

2015-2016: 20,300

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

2014-2015 we served 162,800 with our programs and exhibitions

2015-2016 we served 202,700 with our programs and exhibitions

Leonardo Bravo, an outstanding consultant, continues to work with us to strategically plan improvements in our organizational and grant-writing capacity and to ensure sustainable growth.

Without your support we can't do it. Please join us donate by check or paypalon this website to make arts a meaningful reality for tens of thousands of young people in our city. We are counting on you.
