Basin Arts – An Art Community

Basin Arts – An Art Community

Feed and be fed creativity

They come to Basin Arts to create.

Dance artists, visual artists, theater artists, musicians, writers, composers and more share, collaborate and learn all under one roof.

The Basin Arts community is a family of artists, with each member offering a unique perspective on life and art. From the artists in residence to the students who take dance classes — and anyone who participates in community programming, the goal of the organization is for everyone to offer a part of themselves by showing up and being open to the creative process.
