We're proud to offer educational opportunities to the surrounding communities in our mountain region, an area traditionally underserved but very much alive with artistic dreams as vital and vibrant as those found anywhere. Along with the traditional academic activities of our students and faculty, Bardo Arts Center (BAC) offers opportunities for patrons, artists, musicians, theater groups, creative writers, folk artists, and craft persons alike.  

BAC enhances the appreciation for the Appalachian region's rich and diverse cultural history - woven from the experiences of Native Americans, Scotch-Irish, African-Americans, and a growing Hispanic community. From summer camps to museum education programs, there's something for everyone.
