During these times, life‘s landscape changes so dramatically and abruptly, leaving many voids in our daily lives as well as in ourselves. It’s in these empty spaces where we can be renewed with simple acts of kindness, consideration and compassion toward each other. Leading with the idea of “how can we help,” Bethany gratefully presents our first annual GiveRaiser.
We hope this gift will bring our community together by bringing you and yours together.
Join us to participate in this collective project. Please register and our gift will be delivered to you.

Greetings and salutations,
During these challenging times, art is a beacon on the horizon and a place of hope. Despite limitations, Bethany Arts Community has managed to continue meaningful programs for kids, adults, and professional artists virtually and safely in person.
At Bethany Arts Community:
- our workshops, classes and youth arts programs offer experiences in drawing and painting, mosaic, theater and dance.
- our residency program for professional artists – currently in session with a reduced number of artists, in a safe, distanced way – offers opportunities to develop new works and engage with peers and the public
- our gallery, sculpture park and gardens are open and free for all.
Central to the mission of our organization and to ensure accessibility, Bethany Arts Community lowers barriers to participation through scholarships and a policy that no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
We cannot do this work without you.
