Donations lay the foundation for what is possible. By 2026 Bunnell aims to:

  •   Maintain and increase artist payments through exhibits & teaching opportunities.
  •   Diversify Artist in Schools by certifying more teaching artists.
  •   Present a guest curator to envision new exhibitions.
  •   Find long-range grants for the Visual Arts Exhibits program and public art.
  •   Strengthen relationships among our community through murals and pop-up performances.

Activate these strategies by making a year-end donation to Bunnell Street Arts Center. This team of artists, volunteers, board & staff have a rhythm, conviction and passion for building community through artist-led programming, and supporters like you know the importance of leaning into the edges of where art and innovation thrive.

Thank you for being here. Any donation amount lights the way! Donate here.

My best,
