BAMP is a nonprofit organization of local artists dedicated to facilitating and creating public art. Our vision is to turn bare, blighted walls into artistic gateways into the community's surrounding environment.
Our program is constantly establishing new standards of excellence in the practice of public and contemporary art creation and exhibition. Our collaborative dialogue processes empower artists and communities to address and organize issues in the community. Community art builds bridges from conceptual connection to a physical understanding. With close attention to our clients' desires, the results are beautiful murals that inspire and motivate viewers.
