Dec 3 – 21 – Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center’s Holiday Shop

The Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center’s (BBAC) annual Holiday Shop, celebrating its 40th year milestone, is a pop-up shopping experience where more than 3,000-square-feet of BBAC gallery space is transformed into a unique boutique offering one-of-a-kind, artisan-made gift items.

This year, Holiday Shop will feature handmade works from a record-breaking 200 participating artists.  In a year where art fairs and shows have been cancelled, and the non-profit BBAC was closed for nearly eight months, the support of shoppers at this year’s Holiday Shop is more crucial than ever.  All Holiday Shop proceeds benefit working artists and BBAC ArtAccess and education programs.

New this year, in addition to ceramics, jewelry, home décor, greeting cards, stationery, glassware, paintings, candles, soaps, kitchenware and the popular ornament gallery, shoppers also will enjoy the debut of the “Mug Wall,” as well a noted increase in men’s gift items.

BBAC Holiday Shop will offer visitors a safe and comfortable shopping experience.  Capacity in the spacious galleries will be limited to allow for appropriate distancing, and masks are required for all staff and shoppers.
