Discover the contemporary art & craft of the Puget Sound Region.
Located a stone’s throw away from the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal, BIMA is the gateway to Bainbridge Island and beyond. Home to a growing Permanent Art Collection with a focus on artists and collections from the Puget Sound region, BIMA is thrilled to welcome visitors from around the world to view its galleries.
Since opening its LEED Gold certified building in 2013, BIMA has become the cultural living room for the local community. The Museum’s galleries, auditorium, Bistro, Store and plaza buzz with a variety of events covering the entire artistic spectrum.
BIMA’s exhibitions feature recognized masters and emerging artists that are sure to leave you inspired by their striking work and thought-provoking themes. With major exhibitions changing three times per year (that’s 15-20 new shows to experience annually!), as well as classes, tours, films, workshops, lectures, concerts and events, there is always something new and exciting to experience at BIMA.
BIMA actively delivers its artistic vision through a variety of educational programs. The Museum’s Arts Growth Initiative focuses on advancing its multi-pronged educational program, including field trips for students throughout the region during the school day, hands-on art projects to children of all ages, after-school art clubs, summer camps, workshops for adult learners, and programs for people going through Early Stage Memory Loss.
BIMA believes art is for everyone and is committed to provide free general admission to the museum every day. This is made possible thanks to gracious and generous donors and BIMA members like you.
