BGC Arts Center brings creativity to you.
The late great Diana Vreeland once said, “It’s not about the dress you wear, but it’s about the life you lead in the dress.” In the spirit of the iconic editor, we’d like to make a proposition: Instead of staying immobile in your seat, glued to your mobile screen, why not get up and get moving? #Aesthetic and #ahrt are breaking barriers IRL, and we’ve found their new hotspot.
The BGC Arts Center, the newest creative hub in the metro, is making the arts accessible to anyone and everyone. It’s basically a platform for artists and creatives to develop their work, not just showcase it.
Whether you feel like gazing at art or making it yourself, you’ll find that the center’s numerous facilities fit the bill. Head to the Globe Auditorium, which holds productions, talks and even social gatherings. Next, the Exhibit Hall is great for workshops or aspiring artists to showcase their work.
For performing arts enthusiasts, the Zobel de Ayala Recital Hall and the Sun Life Amphitheater are the places to be for upcoming plays, musicals and concerts. Imagine a music festival in the amphitheater under a starry night.
They’ve also upped the ante of the local art scene through their public arts programs. The BGC Art Mart lets artists and entrepreneurs sell their creations. Performers will also be drawn to BGC Impromptu if they’d like to exercise their talents on the spot. Lastly, BGC Passion Collective, the city’s first ever community theater company, gives everyone a chance to break a leg onstage or offstage— they have trainings for production management and costume design, too. In this center, art can be found even outside the confines of a gallery. The Alveo Central Plaza is the best spot to unwind: Start your day by jogging around the plaza, then swing by the standalone Mccafé for a warm cup of joe (or more). Instead of doubletapping the day away, why not get up, exercise your creativity, and engage in art? It’s a worthwhile activity that will also let you break in that new pair of heels—or sneaks! bgcartscenter.org
