We look forward to sharing a spectacular 2022 season with you. Stay tuned for more details. We will send you an email as soon as we post the season online.

BIG ARTS is practicing the highest standards of safety during this challenging time. All visitors are required to wear masks throughout the facility. Please be sure to put on your mask before entering the building. We ask that you are mindful of physical distancing. With physical distancing precautions in mind, BIG ARTS is selling only 50% of the seats in Christensen Performance Hall. Until further notice, only 200 seats will be available for any event in the Hall, and a maximum of 25 people will be allowed in the gallery at any given time. BIG ARTS has enhanced its air filtration system, all surfaces are wiped down between use, a professional sanitation fogger is being used after each gathering, and there are hand sanitation “stations” throughout the ground floor.



 To Create Great Arts, Entertainment and Learning Experiences
that always Inspire, Enrich and Delight.


In 1979, BIG ARTS was created by and for the community and owes its rich history to a small band of dedicated artists who drew inspiration from each other and from the breathtaking island beauty that infused their work with grace and authenticity.

They set out to create a special gathering place where artistic and educational experiences were accessible to all. Today that vision is alive and well. With the help of our loyal donors and supporters, BIG ARTS will carry that vision forward providing joy, inspiration and a sense of community for generations to come.

The arts – fine arts, theater, dance, literature, music – have always been at the forefront of change, pointing the way to greater awareness and our shared responsibility to help build a more civil and just society. BIG ARTS stands with all peoples of color for the advancement of human dignity and justice.  Our 2021 and future programming will reflect opportunities for all to join us in listening more carefully, hearing more clearly and loving more deeply.
