Circle Membership

You're invited to join BIMA’s “Circle” 

The Circle brings together individuals from across our region who share an appreciation for the arts and a personal commitment to enhancing BIMA. Annual gifts from Circle members help BIMA to preserve, collect, exhibit and foster understanding of great works of art at the highest standards. Funds also support critically needed arts education and outreach efforts to rural communities in the Puget Sound region. 

Be part of a wonderful tradition of generosity as a member of the BIMA family.
