What does BIMA do?
- BIMA opened in 2013 and quickly established itself as a bright, new addition to the cultural landscape of Washington State and beyond. BIMA has become the cultural living room for Bainbridge Island, a regional resource for quality arts and lifelong learning, and a welcoming landmark to visitors new and returning. Its mission – to engage a diverse population in the art and craft of our region and our time – has been brought to life as a new and vibrant showcase for some of the best contemporary artists and craftsmen of the greater Puget Sound. Go to biartmuseum.org for more information!

All proceeds benefit the mission of BIMA, and bring an exceptional year-round program of exhibitions, classes, tours, films, workshops, lectures and events, presenting educational and cultural programs for people of all ages, backgrounds, interests, economic means and abilities.
