Boneyfiddle Arts Center recently obtained its official non-profit status after working closely with their attorneys and the Internal Revenue Service. Established in 2010, the center has continuously functioned as an arts center, exposition space, and educational facility. In the past year BAC hosted four featured artist showcases, nine educational classes, nine community outreach exhibits, a month long “Day of the Dead” cultural celebration, and numerous fundraising events. BAC also collaborated with seventeen community partners in various projects. Additional activities held at the Center included a weekly drumming circle, workshops, music lessons & performances, book signings, art lectures, and a literary club.
The non-profit classification will allow BAC to expand and increase activities with their mission to promote the arts in the Portsmouth area. Boneyfiddle Arts Center is located at 546 Second Street in Portsmouth, Ohio, and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call (740) 876-9668 for additional information or questions.
