The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, by Coates Design, is a new 20,000 square foot building with space to host exhibitions and educational programs for audiences of all ages, interests and skill levels. With a focus on local art and artists from the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas and the Puget Sound region, we will promote cultural and economic vitality for Bainbridge Island and beyond. The Phase 1 construction of an auditorium and classrooms was completed in summer 2011 and these museum facilities are already a community gathering place.
Phase II of the new art museum building will feature exhibition galleries, an orientation room, a conference room, green roof/patio, museum café, museum shop and other public spaces. We will be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy Environmental Design) Gold status museum building in Washington State.
