A Charitable Contribution

Art Leaders Gallery will be raising money to benefit Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center (BBAC) during the Beyond Boundaries Exhibition. We will be pledging 5% of all August sales generated from the six featured artist and all proceeds from the reception ticket sales.

About the BBAC

The Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, founded in 1957, serves the Detroit region’s visual arts community. Our mission is “to connect people of all ages and abilities with visual arts education, exhibition, and other creative experiences.”  We do this by offering classes, exhibits, workshops, camps, and events to the public.  Our exhibits are always free and open to the public. Also, scholarships are available for adults or youth classes.  Nearly 6,000 individuals from Southeast Michigan benefit from art opportunities every year.  Whether  through art-looking and discussion or learning a new skill in drawing, painting, sculpture, jewelry/metalsmithing, printmaking, ceramics and fiber arts, the BBAC promotes the creative process.

Our support of artists includes not only exhibitions, but also retail space that facilitates partnerships with local artists.  Our Gallery Shop, open year-round, hosts over 75 artists.  During the month of December, the BBAC hosts the annual Holiday Shop.  Participation well exceeds 100 artists throughout the region.

 Finally, BBAC outreach programs, ArtAccess, provide authentic art experiences for those with limited access and varied challenges. For example, people with physical limitations due to age; cognitive disabilities; or geographic restrictions are likely program participants.

 The BBAC has been place-making for decades.  With three generations of artists, students, and art-lovers, our facility is called “home” by many. We are proud of the diverse mix of ages, nationalities, and religions that come from more than 100 Michigan cities. The number and variety of classes, exhibitions, and events also serve regional artists and draw regional audiences.
