Welcome to BDAAA
The Beaver Dam Area Arts Association presents six or more major art exhibits each year, showing outstanding work from all over the state and the nation. Among others, major exhibits include an Annual Area High School Art Exhibit offering scholarships for outstanding High School seniors, and a Holiday Gift Gallery, November through December. Visitors are invited to come to the Seippel Homestead and Center for the Arts, 1605 N. Spring Street, Beaver Dam, WI to view the exhibits during regular exhibit hours or by appointment. Among the exhibited works, a number of exhibiting artists also offer work for sale. During the Holiday Gift Gallery, all eight exhibit rooms are filled with items created by artists, available for purchase. Throughout the year, the BDAAA Gift Shop features artists' original works such as jewelry, basketry, glassware, ceramics, photography, art prints, note cards and more, accommodating various tastes and price levels.
In addition to the major exhibits and the gift shop, BDAAA offers clubs, classes, programs, and special events, emphasizing its commitment to serve the area with art appreciation and “art and nature” education opportunities for all ages. The Photographers' Club, Light Catchers, meets monthly. Another major event is the Secret Garden Tour every summer. BDAAA’s exhibits, programs, events, and gardens are primarily dependent upon community volunteer support and community partnership with such organizations as the Beaver Dam Unified School District’s Charter School and the Fox Lake Correctional Institution.
Open Wednesday through Sunday from 1-4 pm or by appointment
