Annual Appeal 2020

Annual Appeal 2020

As we navigate 2020, we remain committed to BAA’s mission to connect artists and the community in order to inspire creativity and increase access to the visual arts.


It has been a challenging year. All of us are considering where our contributions can make the most impact right now. The pandemic, racial injustice, political uncertainty, and social isolation… there are so many challenges and needs.

We hope you agree the arts are essential to the human spirit and to our community; offering uplift, insight, compassion, and connection. During challenging times, we need these points of connection more than ever.

We hope you’ll consider supporting the BAA’s Annual Appeal.

Every year, your donations provide engagement opportunities to Berkshire County high school art students and their teachers. This year, with arts education on shaky ground and field trips unlikely, BAA will give stipends to county art teachers to directly support arts education in schools. We’ve allocated $1200 to this initiative, and with your contributed support, hope to increase this amount.

You can join BAA’s commitment to support art in our region and arts education in our schools

Please consider becoming a Friend of the BAA ($25), a Sponsor ($50), Patron ($100), Benefactor ($300), or a Champion of the Arts ($500).
