About the movement
Barton Art Movements (BAM) is a volunteer-led grassroots initiative that focuses on celebrating and bringing additional public art to Barton County. Our mission is to create community pride through public art.
With the support of our donors, we are able to create a space that facilitates new public art projects by bringing together talented artists and spaces for them to create. If you are an artist interested in getting involved with BAM, please fill out our form on the Artists page!
Our organization relies on the support of our amazing donors. Learn more about ways you can contribute as a Private Donor or a Corporate Sponsor, and check out others who have led the way with gifts of their own!
BAM could not exist without our amazing board and volunteers. Meet our amazing group below.
