About Us

The Bigfork Art & Cultural Center, BACC, traces its roots back to 1977 when a group of forward-thinking individuals saw the need to foster the arts and to provide a community center for the small village of Bigfork.  The group purchased and renovated a gas station on Electric Avenue and the location became the Bigfork Art & Cultural Center.

BACC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to celebrate and preserve the history of Bigfork and Montana; to provide opportunities for Montana artists to thrive; to explore new ideas and new trends in art and culture; and to serve as a creative and educational hub for all who visit.

The upper Gallery serves as the BACC Museum, featuring our Bigfork History Project, our interactive workstation and our historical collection. The lower Gallery hosts a variety of exhibits throughout the year and Art, etc., our gift shop, features works by Montana artists, artisans and authors.
