A New Year of Art at The Bascom
The Bascom emerges from a shadowed 2020 with a string of new initiatives and a dazzling new website – thebascom.org.
As we enter the New Year in 2021, we might reflect on the challenges of 2020, and the sacrifices we’ve all made to remain safe and healthy; missed moments with friends and loved ones, and cultural experiences relegated to a mobile device.
But the New Year also brings with it the resolve to begin anew, overcome old fears, and meet challenges with a fresh perspective. Though the future is still uncertain, The Bascom remains committed to providing quality visual arts programming despite the challenges ahead. We invite you to continue participating with us in new ways.
This month, we’re unveiling many of our upcoming education programs and we encourage Bascom members to take advantage of Early Bird Registration from January to March. This member benefit gives enthusiasts, amateurs, and professional artists alike the opportunity to secure their spot in one of The Bascom’s over 40 workshops – led by visiting professional artists from across the country. Despite the scheduling challenges and safety restrictions in place last year, we were able to safely host several workshops that are so important to the personal and professional development of regional artists and visitors to the Plateau.
Speaking of new beginnings, The Bascom will be launching a newly designed website this winter. With a new look and user-friendly interface, visitors will be able to easily find a Bascom program that fits their interests and schedule. Our 2021 programming will be available for view online at thebascom.org, including workshop registration. Interested students can register online for workshops and classes, or contact The Bascom’s Education and Outreach Department.
If you’d like to become a Bascom member and take advantage of Early Bird Registration, please visit the website at thebascom.org, or call us at (828) 526-4949.
