For over 20 years, BAVC has continued to circle back in my life in such positive ways.  I can't say that about many organizations.

I wanted to see what would happen when you took ambitious artists, introduced them to cutting edge technologists and engagement specialists, and supported them with top personnel and resources. I thought it needed to be built, but then I got to witness what BAVC has been doing.
