a message to the community

To Our Community of Artists and Supporters

We are humbled by your support. Last month we put out a call for donations and so many of you gave so generously! Thank you! We also want to thank the Legacy Foundation supporting Central School Project with emergency funding. We are so thankful to all they do in Southern Arizona.


We want to introduce you to our Art at Home section of the website 

where you can find streaming film links, online museum and gallery exhibitions, and tutorials for artmaking.

Our planning committee is working on having online exhibitions as well as modified process of exhibitions in our facility. Photography of work may become part of the artist process so we have a tutorial for you on that


There is so much pain and turmoil in our country right now we want to humbly acknowledge the bravery and resilience of the demonstrators everywhere in opposition to excessive force and oppression in communities of color. Bisbee showed its heart with a  demonstration on May 3rd. Artists and art making in every form can help get us through these times.

Thank you​ to our regional foundations

Foundations and philanthropists everywhere are working so hard to support nonprofits in these difficult times. We want to thank the Arizona Community Foundation and the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona for the support we have received through their Covid-19 Community Response Funds. Thank you so much! They help so many. Go to & to learn more or to donate to their funds!
