What We Do
Bemis Center facilitates the creation, presentation, and understanding of contemporary art through an international residency program, exhibitions, and educational programs. Our vision is to inspire an open and diverse dialogue on the critical issues that give shape and meaning to the human condition. As an artist-centric nonprofit, we honor and respect the critical role artists play in our society. We value creativity, trust, courage, diversity, tolerance, and the open exchange of ideas and world views.
