About Us

The Borrego Art Institute (BAI) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization with the goal to inspire and enrich the community of Borrego Springs by offering a venue for the public to experience, create, and enjoy all forms of art.

Our distinctive campus features the Gallery, the Pottery studio and workshop, the ArtFarm gardens, the KidsArt programs and (coming soon) our on-site Restaurant, all in the heart of Borrego Springs’ core business district at Christmas Circle and Palm Canyon Drive. A community resource and gathering place, The BAI is an important catalyst for adult and children's education, participation, and art appreciation.

Please join us for classesshows and other events, and as a member. If you are an artist, a resident, a visitor, a family, an art lover, or simply a curious explorer, we look forward to welcoming you!

What's New at BAI? 

Announcing the ARTFARM "Block Party". The ARTFARM  "Block Party" will take place next Saturday November 21st at 8:30 AM on the ARTFARM site. We have enough blocks to build 8 beds and need all the help we can get. Bring shovels (square preferred), gloves, and levels. We also need masonry line, picks and hoses. Be prepared for some hard, but rewarding work.

The ARTFARM'S 1st Annual Golf Tournament and Dinner was a fantastic success, and we want to express our thanks to everyone who attended. A special thanks to Ken O'Key and Claudia Goldberg who organized the event, and to Dan Wright who generously donated the use of the golf course a The Springs. We also want to thank the many ARTFARM volunteers who helped out with the event.

Pottery Studio Opens for the Season. On November 17th the Pottery Studio will be open and ready for you. The welcome sign is out with an invitation to get your hands into that magical stuff, clay. This ancient material we work with, is responsive, forgiving, suggestive, healing, and playful. The Pottery has the equipment, materials and instruction you need to surprise yourself with what you can create with a lump of clay. Join us and see.
