Sign Up for Bank & Hospital Shows

   Rotating exhibits at the West Texas National Bank and Big Bend Regional Medical Center are great opportunities for BBAC members to display your wall art to new sets of eyes in our community.

  Note: Bank/Hospital rotational exhibits are on hold beginning the week of Thanksgiving, 2020, after Richard Curtin's exhibit ends, as the indoor bank lobby is currently not open for business. However, members may still sign up for these exhibits at the gallery, or by contacting Shelly Rogers.
