While Kay Levie, the Vice President of Borrego Art Institute (BAI)'s Board of Directors, says the BAI is a "constant work in progress," that focus on constant improvement will only enhance the enriching exhibits and programs it already provides the community.

At the core of BAI's mission is "promotion of the arts and art education," whether it be for kids and adults or artists and patrons. Levie hopes to stimulate "a revitalization of the town business center."

The BAI received a certificate of recognition from Senator Joel Anderson last year for their contribution to the well being of the community.

Anderson explained, "The Borrego Art Institute has created educational and recreational opportunities for our community, and it's a hub for anyone who loves the arts. I would like to thank all the volunteers and contributors who have made maintaining the BAI possible."

Levie underscores the importance of this recognition, as "support from our elected representatives like Senator Anderson let us know that we are appreciated and are valuable assets to our community."

Plans for upgrades to the campus include the completion of the ArtFarm Garden, which includes a pottery studio and an upcoming installation of a mosaic and tile mural on the south side of the building, courtesy of various donations and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

New shows are hosted every month through May 1. For more information, go to www.borregoartinstitute.org.
