make their work available to the public. BWAC is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization.
Thanks to the largesse of the O’Connell Organization, and support from the New York City Cultural Development Fund and Individual Donors, BWAC provides a lively venue for metropolitan-area artists and art-lovers in every graphic medium.
