There will also be a live acoustic set by Salt Lake City band Violet Waves and catered refreshments!
BDAC is hoping to raise $5000 through this Kickstarter campaign that will go towards paying for:
- Track lighting installation and equipment including a conversion to LED lighting
- Moveable gallery walls
- Gallery hanging system
- Furniture and fixtures
- Exhibit equipment including a moving cart
- Moving expenses
- Temporary storage
- Gallery Pedestals
Towards the end of the open house, various city representatives have been invited to help us kick off the remodel by knocking down the first wall! This will be an exciting night for BDAC and they are looking forward to sharing it with the community.
Once the Kickstarter has officially launched BDAC will have 30 days to reach the fundraising goal of $5000 to make this new art center a reality! The projected move in date for BDAC is January 2015! Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing – projects must reach their funding goals to receive any money.

“We are so excited about the new location of Bountiful/Davis Art Center! This space will give us the room we need to grow and expand our programs that the community has been engaged in for just over 40 years. We will be going from one art classroom to seven! This is YOUR community art center and we want you to have input into this major change as we move back to Bountiful. For all those whose lives have been impacted by BDAC and/or Summerfest, I call upon you to respond with a donation to the Kickstarter Online Fundraising Campaign (it’s easy – we’ll show you how). We need your help to reach our goal and we know we can count on all the people who have made BDAC what it is today. Please continue to support us through this move to our permanent home on Main Street in Bountiful. We can’t wait to show you the plans for the new space and we will continue to update you on our progress.”
