Bihl Haus Arts • 1
community-based arts organization
Located in the historic 90-year-old George Bihl House inside Primrose at Monticello Park Senior Apartments, Bihl Haus Arts is perhaps the only professional gallery for contemporary art in the United States on the premises of an affordable senior housing community. Bihl Haus Arts has three main programs: the Gallery Series; the GO! Arts program of free art classes for older adults (our “Goldens”); and the community-based On & Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour.
To date, the Bihl Haus Gallery has exhibited more than 600 artists in over 85 exhibitions and hosted more than 90 poetry and prose readings involving over 100 local authors. In relation to the shows, Bihl Haus Arts presents art workshops, scholarly lectures, panel discussions, film screenings, and musical, dance and theatrical performances, most free and all open to the public.
Currently on exhibit are works by virtually all of the artists participating in the 10th Annual On & Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour, which is presented by Bihl Haus Arts. Gallery hours are Fridays and Saturdays, 1 to 4 pm, or by appointment. The On & Off Fred exhibit continues through Saturday, March 5.
