BAC Space Spring 2019
This spring, artists and their collaborators will develop new projects during BAC Space, a residency period that encourages peer exchange by hosting multiple artists in BAC's studios concurrently.
On Thursday, April 11, BAC Space artists invite audiences into the studio for a glimpse of the creative process and an opportunity to see works in varying stages of development.
