On Wednesday, November 10, join us for the 11th annual BAM Community Breakfast. Each fall, the Museum invites its neighbors, friends, and community leaders to gather for a unique networking opportunity, breakfast, and discussion about the role of the arts in our growing community.

While safety measures move us to gather virtually once again this year, we encourage guests to enjoy their coffee and breakfast goodies with us during a live panel discussion about the Eastside's evolving and expanding landscape, inspired by BAM Biennial 2021: Architecture & Urban Design. The panel will be moderated by BAM Associate Curator Lane Eagles and will feature Tim Campbell; Kemper Freeman, Jr.; Joydeep Hazra; and John Savo. Learn more about our moderator and panelists below.
