The Borrego Art Institute is a nonprofit organization that’s here to inspire and enrich the Borrego Springs community. People come here to experience, create, and enjoy all art forms — from pottery to gardening, painting to photography. Our distinctive campus features the Gallery and the ArtPark gardens as well as an off-campus pottery studio. The BAI is a community resource and gathering place and a major supporter of adult and children’s education, participation and art appreciation. Please join us for classes, workshops, shows, and other events, and become a member. Whether you are an artist, a Borrego Springs resident, a visitor, an art lover, or simply a curious explorer, we look forward to welcoming you!
