The latest creation of the Borrego Art Institute is the ArtPark, an expanded art, food, and education campus, including a new building showcasing pottery and a creative approach to urban farming in the desert. Locally grown fruit, vegetables, herbs, and flowers provide farm-to-fork delight, a novel experience for desert dwellers and visitors.
The ArtPark allows BAI to extend its mission to encourage and provide instruction in the arts in the Borrego Springs community by including culinary arts, gardening, community sustainability, and research into desert friendly, organic farming practices. The campus will serve as an education and event venue, and provide access to locally grown produce for the Borrego Springs Community. Local students will actively participate in all aspects of the ArtPark through hands-on learning designed to inspire creativity.
