Bloomington Watercolor Society Members Exhibit Paintings in Atrium


Bloomington, Ind. - During the month of November, the City of Bloomington Entertainment and Arts District (BEAD) will showcase artworks created by members of the Bloomington Watercolor Society (BWS) in the Showers Atrium of City Hall, 401 N. Morton Street.

BWS works to promote a growing relationship with artists, encourage one another and provide opportunities for promoting and exhibiting watercolor paintings in the community. Membership is open to everyone from hobbyists to professional artists. For more information on the BWS, inquiries can be sent to members@bloomingtonwatercolor.org.

The exhibit will be on display starting Friday, Nov. 1 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, as well as additional evening and weekend hours when City Hall is open for meetings.

This project is another effort under the City's strategy to leverage and expand the economic development potential of the arts in Bloomington. According to the 2012 Americans for the Arts study, Bloomington's nonprofit arts sector contributes $72.3 million to the local economy annually through direct spending by arts' organizations and their audiences. For more information on the study visit BEAD's website.

The City of Bloomington is committed to providing opportunities for area artists to exhibit artwork at City Hall. For more information on the exhibition program, contact Assistant Economic Development Director for the Arts Miah Michaelsen at michaelm@bloomington.in.gov or 349.3534.
