The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator (BFAI) is a 501c3 organization run entirely by volunteers. Its mission is to provide resources to help emerging artists, offer community education and cultural events, and expand on the "Arts Center" theme. BFAI has affordable studio space for rent and provides a supportive environment for the artist to practice, create, exhibit and sell their art.
Our monthly gallery shows are kicked off with a “BFAI First Friday’s Gallery Opening” and feature the work of local and regional artists. These events are free and open to the public and include complimentary hors d'oeuvres & refreshments. BFAI partners with downtown restaurants to offer dinner specials to make it an evening of dining and art.
Built in 1912 the facility at 520 E Grand Avenue originated as the Bell Telephone Company. The two-story construction of Chicago firebrick has since housed restaurants, the Elks Club and an antique store. An excellent location in downtown Beloit, it is easily accessible to both area residents and out-of-town visitors. In 1999, the Beloit Economic Development Corporation purchased the building on behalf of the emerging Incubator. With the support of the Greater Beloit area, the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator continues to grow and lead by example.
As a non-profit we depend on community support to fulfill our mission. BFAI has assembled a membership package that we refer to as "The membership that pays for itself". We have partnered with downtown businesses to provide benefits that easily pay for the cost of membership at the various levels. Please take a moment to review the membership materials in the link above. Of course your donations are always welcome as well. - Thank you
