COVID-19: BCAC’s Preparedness Response

To respect the CDCs request for social distancing, the Broome County Arts Council will suspend all events and programs for the next 4 weeks.

Our offices and Artisan Gallery will be closed to the public until April 13th, but we’ll still get you the latest art views, art news and art opportunities, as well as resources to help our artists, performers, and musicians get through this difficult time. Additionally, you may reach us with questions via email at

We look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
