As the premiere venue for contemporary art in the region, the WCU Fine Art Museum at Bardo Arts Center is the cultural heart for creative arts in Western North Carolina. Serving as a catalyst to celebrate and preserve the artistic legacy of the area, our approach is diverse, educational, and multi-disciplinary. We strive to act as an incubator and laboratory for emerging and established artists, and are dedicated to collecting, interpreting and showcasing cross-cultural innovation in contemporary art.
