The bascom, a nonprofit center for the visual arts in Highlands, has a beautiful new home as of May 2009: a six-acre, “green,” architect-designed pastoral campus where it serves people through high-quality rotating exhibitions, classes and educational presentations. The campus features historic buildings, a covered bridge, a nature trail, a 23,000 square foot main building for two-dimensional adult and children’s art, a separate reconstructed Barn Studio for three-dimensional art, a terrace for venue rentals, and much more. Inspire, create, escape!
