Bunnell’s flagship program opens the first Friday of every month with an artist’s reception, lecture, and demonstration workshops which are free and open to the public. A community tradition established by Bunnell Street Art Center in 1991, exhibitions continue to promote education and artistic awareness for the public, networking, exchange and professional development for Alaskan artists. Bunnell’s Visual Art Exhibition Program, has a national profile and has been funded substantially by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation since 2006.

The Visual Arts Exhibition program is sponsored by art sales, individual donors and local business sponsors.
