Enriching Human Experience through the Arts

Putting art at the heart of a community enhances our lives and inspires us to think beyond the norm. Each artist expresses their feelings and creativity in unique ways. That is why it is so important to feature artists, their work and teachings at both the Bankhead Theater and the Bothwell Arts Center.
