Help us Take the Arts Council to the Next Level!

The Berkeley Arts Council is entering its fourteenth year. From our start using borrowed spaces for events, exhibits, meetings and classes through the establishment of the Berkeley Art Works we’ve threaded our way through many challenges. Now it’s time for the next phase of Amplifying the Arts, one where BAC provides more opportunities for local artists and artisans, art lovers and audiences, students and creators. We need your help to get to that next level.  Read the full article to learn about donating artwork or other prizes, and what is a “Tombola” anyway!
