Bluefield Arts & Revitalization Corporation
The Alliance for the Arts, Ltd and the Bluefield Preservation Society merged into the Bluefield Arts & Revitalization Corporation (B.A.R.C.) in October 2020.
The Bluefield Arts & Revitalization Corporation's (BARC) mission is to use the arts to create opportunities for education, employment, and entertainment in downtown Bluefield.
The Bluefield Arts & Revitalization Corporation envisions a vital arts culture enriched by a vibrant arts diversity with organizations as well as individuals across geographic artistic, institutional boundaries regionally, nationally, and internationally.
We believe art is essential. It has the power to transform individuals and communities.
In so doing defines and benefits our community and society.
Excellence, integrity, service, inclusion, and engagement are fundamental tenets of our commitment to the arts.
Our Goal is to foster education with access to the arts by connecting artists, communities and resources, and by exploring new forms of creative expression and method of presentation.
Our Goal is to provide leadership in the development and delivery of model programs and partnerships to address access, creation, presentation and expansion of markets for artists and their work.
